Star Light, Star Bright


Date: June 7, 8 pm - 10 pm
Wish I May. Wish I Might. Have The Wish. I Wish Tonight.



Guests are invited to enjoy a relaxing night underneath the eternal gaze of the stars. Walk down a sand covered path, set aglow by torchlight, and find yourself at our handmade observatory. Here, the night is filled with the whispers of wind against sand along with light classical music played from unseen speakers.

Day passed into night at Caravanserai. All around the hotel, guests explored its vast offerings. Some took refuge from the sun in its cool pools while others relished the heat, bathing in its warmth.

Newer guests would learn that Caravanserai remained just as active in its nighttime offerings. While the previous night highlighted an evening of concealed identities, tonight featured a rather laid-back event in comparison.

Caravanserai’s observatory was one of a kind. Though small, it offered a vast canvas of starlight in which to observe and marvel at. In order to reach its lounging area, one must walk through tight, ringed walls, composed entirely of brick, and up a few stairs. The passageway is tight so it only permits one person at a time rather than clusters of people.

Once one reaches the lounge area, they will find comfortable sitting and blankets if they become cold. An attendant stands at the ready to offer assistance if any is needed with the telescope. Binoculars are also available for viewing of the night sky. Handouts, detailing the basics of astronomy, will also be handed out to the observatory's visitors.


masquerade-complete

Keep your secrets.
Keep your silence.
It is a better gift than truth. -- Anne Rice


The sun no longer sat atop its azure throne, positioned at the center of the sky. As the hours slipped by, a more welcoming heat embraced deserters and non-deserters alike rather than sought to set their skin ablaze with ancient fire. As such, the song changed from one created by the slither of sand and complaining bleats of fickle camels to the various clicks and rattles of reptilian creatures. Many of the creatures which remained hidden during the day escaped their burrows in the evening to search for food...or become food.

Inside of Caravanserai, the hotel had no period of calm. The opening, thus far, had been successful, complete with unexpected arrivals and mostly satisfied customers. Those of the staff, who were able, abandoned their primary duties a little early in order to assist with the final touches to the event hall.

Already, the previously empty hall was transformed from former blandness into the embodiment of modern meets gothic. None really knew what Ruby meant when she proclaimed the party’s theme until she sprouted off comments about being enamored with the supernatural, from the devilish antics of the fae to the eternal elegance of vampires. From that description, a evening which celebrated darkness was born!

At one side of the hall, there were white linen covered tables, filled with exquisite dinner plates, shining, gleaming silverware, and glowing candles. Ornate centerpieces, made of orchids and black feathers, added extra flair to each table. A stage sat at the center of the hall, complete with a podium for speakers and instruments where live entertainment would fill the hall with music for dancers. Cover songs were the band's specialty. They were prepared to take requests from any member of guests or just play from their select songs. In addition, there was a sweets table in the corner, piled high with freshly baked, bite sized goodies for guests to indulge themselves throughout the night.

If that was not enough to keep people happy, there were more engaging activities in another corner of the hall. It was here guests could take photos of by themselves or with friends made during the night using props of fake bats or disposable vampire teeth. Those daring enough to peer into the future would find a tarot card reader as well.

Prior to entering the fun, all guests would need to stop by a desk just outside of the hall’s open doors. Staff members would take the names of each arrival and hand them a sheet of paper, explaining this was to be their secret for the night.



Activities

Photo Booths: Don your fangs and fluff your bat! Take pictures with friends and strangers alike at our vampire themed photo booth. You will receive an old school print out and an email copy if you're open to receiving one.

Tarot Card Readers: Care to learn your fortune, sweetheart? Stop by and learn what the future may hold!

Best Dressed /Best Mask Competition: Submit your selection for best dressed/best mask throughout the evening. The winner will receive a prize! No, you may not nominate yourself.

Secrets: Every guest at the Masquerade ball has been assigned a secret prior to being granted entrance to the party. Try and discover their "secret" while keeping yours hidden away! The person who learns the most secrets will win a prize! If you rather avoid a scene with the staff member charged with check-in duty, just let us know and we'll handle the secret business OOC.

Location: Event Hall | Masquerade Ball | Entrance
Tagging: OPEN!

Darkness. Gothic Horror. Vampires. The sweet evil seduction of the night. A Becky knows not these things.

Sure, she knew of the dark summer nights in the American South, and that creepy feeling when the darkness seemed angry, and the fireflies were nowhere and the crickets were still. She knew of the strange looks you got in the wrong part of the backroads, and coming from a place that most people considered to be a backroads in the first place, what she thought qualified was quite something. But that was a different sort of darkness.

This was the darkness of red wine and black dresses, of refined, genteel evil. She didn't know this.

So, she put on a sexy dress and a pretty mask and hoped it would be dazzling enough that nobody would say anything. It worked for her typically when people wanted her in fancy attire. Show enough of the goods, nobody worries about the dress code. Of course she had a husband the last time she want to a party dressed like this. The lack of him would make this both more interesting and more fun. Hopefully in good ways.

So she would just walk in, make some friends and ... be the first one there. Of course.

Well, so much for that.

She quickly snapped up a glass of whatever was on hand, and saw she had to collect a secret before joining the party.

"Hey." She said with a shy, gentle, friendly wave to the attendant. "Secret?" She asked. This would be fun, a good excuse to talk to people. Just try not to blurt yours out two seconds into every conversation Becky.

Name: Theodore Leavenworth
Date | Time: June 6th 2020 | 6:00 PM
Wearing: Fancy Fancy with Mask
Location: Event Hall | Masquerade Ball | Entrance
Tagging:  Devil Wears Blue aka Becky

Theodore was somewhat excited for tonight’s festivities. He enjoyed the occasional chance to show himself being capable of wearing clothes more complicated than a pair of sweats and tank top. Thinking of how impressed the others might be with his transformation, especially a certain someone, he slipped away from the final preparation crew and almost raced back to his room. 

Once there, he shedded his clothes in the bathroom and tamed his facial hard with care strokes of a blade. Satisfaction took awhile to achieve but the results were worth his earlier frustration. Smoothing his fingers across the shortened hairs, Theo grinned at his reflection. Only once done with that did he hop into the shower and wash away the evidence of a labor filled afternoon. He tamed his unruly, blonde hair with firm strokes of a brush and then got dressed in one of his finer suits. Only the best tonight or the boss lady might massacre him with a single stare.

The last item he grabbed before heading out of the door was a simple black and gold mask he borrowed from the B&B. Ezekiel had been kind enough to lend it to him so long as his doing so was kept a secret.

Theodore learned of his responsibility for the night upon his arrival. He was not exactly pleased with the job but it was better than other ones, like being security. Sighing, he situated the mask onto his face and secured the string at the back of his head. A few minutes drifted by before the arrival of the first guest. His gaze skimmed across her body, lingering at the generous viewing of her breasts, before he forced his eyes up to her face.

“Hey,” Theodore said in response, clearing his throat with a small cough. “Wow. You’re gorgeous.” Recalling the reason why he was standing there in the first place, he picked up the top hat in front of him and held it out to her. Inside, there were tiny folded sheets of paper. “Yeah. Take one of those and that’s your secret for the night.”

Tagging: Theodore, OPEN!

Becky was quite pleased to receive a compliment from the rather well put together man who greeted her at the secrets table. She could tell that his hair was just a light shake away from coming completely wild and with his freshly trimmed face he looked a bit like a wild thing that had been fancied up for a special occasion. It was like she could tell sense he was normally a bit more rough around the edges than this. She bet that looked pretty good on him too, and so her eyes and mouth both smiled back as he let her know what he thought.

"Why thank you stranger you're not so bad yourself." She said with easy charm as she made a show of reaching in and fishing around "Aha!" She pulled out a secret and read it.

She instantly snickered, then held it to herself, then giggled again. Then her face broke into a grin "Oh that's just," she checked it again to make sure, obviously quite amused as she read it. "Okay. Got it." She said.

She then made sure she was watching as she slipped it into her dress so that it was pressed between her left breast and the tight dress. She'd never actually keep something there for any real length of time with this cut of dress, she just wanted him looking there. She was single. Shut up.

"So do you know all the secrets or do you have one of your own?" She flirted with him.

Name: Brielle "Breezy" Garin
Date | Time: June 6th, 6 p.m.
Wearing: little black dress with heels, a black mask, and this necklace
Location: Event Hall/Masquerade Ball, Entrance
Tagging: Theodore, Open

Breezy walked to the event hall, doing her best not to fall over in the four-inch heels she had bought at the Bits and Bobs shop with her dress. The last time she had worn heels, this high was her wedding dress fitting back states side. That felt like a lifetime ago, a life that never happened. Now she just had to get her fancy shoe legs back. She held her clutch purse by her side and found her way to the entrance. Everything looked gorgeous - black and mysterious just like the invite had been.

It seems she was slightly early which was fine by her. She liked to get a feel of things before all the fun got started. A beautiful woman in a striking blue dress was talking to a man in a suit and mask. He resembled the handsome blond man she had seen working at the front desk earlier. Talking to him before heading in seemed to be the thing to do so she walked that way.

Not wanting to interrupt their chatting, she stood back a few feet and eyed a sign that marked the events of the night. Best dressed, hmm? So far the lady in blue took the night. Breezy looked forward to gawking at all the pretty fashion on display. Honestly, she liked to watch more than she wanted to wear it all. The tarot reading sounded fun - maybe she would get a bit of insight into what she would do with her life after leaving the resort. And a secrets challenge? Now, Breezy was eager to find out what her secret would be and see how good she was at keeping it!

This was going to be interesting.

As soon as he had checked into his room and dropped his travel bags in his room, there was a small, discreet pamphlet upon the bed. There was an invitation to join a masked ball. There would be a best-dressed prize, as well as a secret each guest would have. A secret to keep, and other secrets to discover. So a night of intrigue. There was a light smile to his face. He hadn’t been in one of those things in years. He knew very little of the other guests or of the present staff, which would make things also quite different. This could be a nice way to have strangers to meet and speak with one another. The masks would both add a touch of both anonymity and eroticism. The suggestive glances, the curves and shapes of people around dimly lit banquet tables.

Sure, why not.

He had visited the clothing store, a place called B&B. The man there was not a salesman, he was an artisan. Khalil and he spent perhaps a half-hour together, speaking and figuring out an acceptable set of clothes for the evening. So the young man decided on a striped black-and-white suit, combined with a simple, asymmetrical, striped mask.

Checking his cufflinks, he looked at the time. It was 18:00. As was asked of him. He stepped towards the entrance, thanking the waiter who offered him a cocktail and taking the small glass graciously. Khalil wasn’t a drinker, but tonight was a special night. He could indulge just a little bit. Speaking of indulgence…

There was an absolutely breathtaking woman wearing a dark blue outfit with a detailed, sparkling venetian mask. She was speaking with the attendant. Oh, he had seen that man earlier in the day. Theodore. And another young lady, dressed in black… Oh, Khalil recognized that ruby-red hair. He also recognized that superb body, which she had paraded about in a skimpy swimsuit and an oversized hat when he first checked into the hotel. A sly smirk crossed his face as he actually picked another cocktail glass.

”Good evening.” He said to Brielle, in that smooth purring voice of his. Silently he offered her a cocktail. ”A stunning dress, Miss. It suits you.” He offered her his arm for her to hook her arm in. He offered her his arm, so that they would both walk towards the booth together.

And join in on the conversation between Becky and Theodore.

Date | Time: 6 June 2020, 6:10 PM
Wearing: As pictured plus This mask
Location: Event Hall | Masquerade Hall | Entryway
Tagging: Open, references to everyone present


Joseph had left Mirage around an hour ago, and returned to his room. Upon returning to his room, he had found an ornate envelope at his door. A masquerade ball it had seemed. Formal wear required. Good thing he had taken care of that, at least. He would take the time to clean up, slick back his hair, get rid of the hint of bourbon and cigarettes on his breath. Unfortunately, he hadn't a masquerade mask, so he had stopped at Bits & Bobs...and that's where it got odd. A strange mask, he felt compelled, called towards it. And so, he bought it.

That mask was the one that now covering his face...one side of it anyway. The lingering of his conversation at Mirage, the time he spent dressing, the stop at the store, Joseph Edwards was fashionably late. Of course, then it happened to get even stranger. The woman in the blue dress...something about her seemed familiar. Something about her, in this room, with those people...her conversation partner, a woman with hair of fire in what could only be described as the stereotypical "little black dress"....


And then their male counterparts, dressed in fine suits, casually making conversation. This whole thing had a hauntingly odd feeling to it, and the black and red décor only served to make things even more menacing. Of course, Edwards forced himself to step into the room, despite every fiber of his being saying otherwise.

Tagging: Khalil, Theodore, Open

Breezy was admiring the lavish decorations that transformed the resorts hall to a mythical and gothic adult playground. Her mouth watered at the table of sweets and she wondered about when the last time she had eaten. Well, if tonight wasn't the kind of night to have desert for dinner, when was it? She let her eyes drift to the band that was setting to on stage when she heard a rich, accented voice over her shoulder. She blushed when she saw the man with the dark hair from earlier at the check-in desk. Oh my! Breezy thought, as she swallowed audibly. He had been wearing what seemed at quick glance to be a bikers jacket before, a look that had drawn her eye, but now he was a different kind of gorgeous in his suit. The way his hair fell over the edges of his mask just added to the effect.

"Well, hello there." She was smitted instantly. And suddenly in need of something to wet her parched throat. It just so happened that the man standing before her offered her a glass. She was half tempted to ask about it, he was a stranger after all, but then she saw the waiter walking around with similar flutes on a tray. "Thank you... and thank you." A blush extended down beyond the cover her mask as he complimented her on the dress. Breeze couldn't help but sway a little in it as she took a tiny sip of the cocktail. "It seemed fitting for the climate. And you, look very fetching." She reached up to adjust the flower pin that graced his lapel. There was nothing wrong with it really, it just gave her an excuse to touch him.

"I guess this is where we find out our secret, hmm?" Another small sip of her drink and she already felt bolder, taking his offered arm.

Name: Jesse "JJ" Johnson
Date | Time: June 6th, 6pm
Wearing: Mask // This outfit. The sleeves are unbuttoned and rolled up to his forearm // The black version of these heels to complete the steampunk ensemble
Location: Event Hall | Masquerade Ball | Behind the bar
Tagging: Open

Jesse's blue eyes glittered from behind the mask as he began setting up glasses and wiping down the bar. Everything needed to be perfect. His hair hung about his shoulders and smile tugged at his lips as he watched the first few come in, looking absolutely stunning. There was something so mysterious and intriguing about masquerades and he couldn't help but be a bit delighted, even if he wasn't fully partaking in it.

After washing down the bar for the third time, he flung the towel over one of his shoulders, walking to the other end of the bar. He was not necessarily a tall man, but his heels made him stand at a little over six feet and even though he didn't think of it at the time, it gave a bit of a boost to be able to see all the glorious happenings (and people) better. People watching was one of his favorite things to do, along with mingling. Not to mention the decor was extravagant! Whoever decorated this place. Well, they deserved a raise, that's for sure.

Jesse walked with ease in the heels and it was obvious that it was by far his first time wearing such. He absolutely loved fashion and if heels went best with the outfit? Then heels it would be. At the other end of the bar, he began slicing lemons and limes, filling up a container for when they would inevitably be needed, as well as cherries and other fruits that often went in drinks. They couldn't be too prepared and he was sure it wouldn't be long before the crowd began to get thirsty.

Location: Event Hall | Masquerade Ball | Entrance
Tagging:  Miss Blue aka Becky, Lady Midnight aka Breezy, Gentleman in Pinstripe aka Khalil

Theodore’s dark brown eyes betrayed the fact that he enjoyed their conversation long before his full lips curved into a pleased grin. He had no idea who this woman was but their brief encounter had piqued his curiosity. Too bad he was stuck at this damn desk for the rest of the night or he would make an effort to learn more about her during the party. His ego wouldn’t let him feel discouraged though; he’d find time.

“I look shabby in comparison to you,” Theodore said in earnest before he laughed at her playful antics of searching the top hat for the right secret. “But thank you for your kind words.”

Theo then watched the she-devil as she slipped the small sheet of paper in between her breast and the blue dress. Fuck. His fingers tightened on the hat. She definitely knew how delectable she looked tonight. Again, he lifted his eyes where they should not have been in the first place.

“I have no idea what your secret might be but I’ll be the first to tell you mine.” Leaning across the table, he lowered his voice to a whisper. “Ever since I was a little boy, I’ve had a habit of trying to stick my hand in the cookie jar. My mam didn’t know what to do with me. A slap just didn’t work. Eventually, she gave up and the bad habit remained.” It was not a hotel provided secret but a real one.

Noticing a few more guests walking up to him, he pulled back and winked at her. “Have a wonderful night, Miss Blue.”

At that, he motioned over a redhead in black. “Lady Midnight,” he called to the woman dressed head to toe in gorgeous black. “I can help you now.” To the gentleman in pinstripe, he held up his hand, indicating for the man to wait back a little. Wouldn't want the woman's secret spoiled before she got the opportunity to read it herself.  “I’ll get to you in one moment.”

Name: Becky Washington
Date | Time: June 6 | 6:00 PM
Wearing: As pictured plus this mask. Hey it's as gothic as she gets!
Location: Event Hall | Masquerade Ball | Entrance
Tagging: Theodore, Breezy, Khalil, Joseph OPEN!

Becky couldn't help but grin as she could tell the effect she was having on Theodore. Ah, this felt good. This felt really good.

She could hear footsteps behind her, but she bent over the desk anyway to lean in and whisper to his secret. She knew how her dress would stretch over her from behind, she hoped whoever it was appreciated the view. She was certainly not complaining about what was in front of her. She smiled up at Theodore as he whispered his secret.

"Well," she whispered to him, "Maybe some day you and me can talk about that bad habit of yours." She attempted a wink, which ended up more like an awkward blink in the mask. She straightened up as she heard the others coming up behind her then and turned and smiled at her. "I'll let you get back to work." She said, putting a hand on his forearm and giving it a squeeze, she pulled it away slowly, letting her fingers drag across his sleeve as she turned away and saw who had got to watch her bend over.

Of course, two beautiful, very snazzily attired young people. Both looked much more appropriately dressed for this affair than her. She smiled at them, eyeing their getups. "Wow darling you look amazing, I love that dress!" She gushed to the woman, stepping forward and leaning in, "I'm Becky, nice to meet you!" She tried to do an air kiss near each of the red-headed beauty's cheeks. Both because she was trying to respect local customs and because it gave her and excuse to get nice and cozy with her for just a moment.  Mwah! Mwah!

"And you! Look at you!" She glanced the man up and down, admiring his style. "Wow, if they gave out the prize to a couple you two would win for sure!" Becky just assumed that they were together from how close they stood. She held out her hand to the man, but slowly, so that he could lean in for air kisses too if he liked. She wasn't entirely sure how it worked with men and was still paranoid about seeming uncultured.

She listened to their introductions with a smile, but was a little fidgety.

Because speaking of being uncultured, this dress really didn't have pockets in the cleavage and this paper was started to dig into her, pressed up against her sensitive flesh by the tight dress. "I'll let you get your secrets." She smiled at them and excused herself, wishing she had thought twice about tucking this paper in there.

But there was another man behind them, who she gave a smile to. "Hey!" She said in a voice that she hoped conveyed she hadn't stabbed herself in the boob with a piece of paper while trying to be sexy. "I'm sorry." She paused, and winced as she handed him her glass. "Hold that for a sec." She bent over slightly, pulling her dress forward and reaching into it, pulling out the paper and fixing herself, she crumpled up the paper and tossed it into a nearby wastebasket, basketball shot style. "She shoot she scores!" She beamed taking her glass back. "Hi I'm Becky." She said, extending her hand like he hadn't just done any of that.

Tagging: Brielle, Becky, Theodore, OPEN


Arm in arm, the two masked strangers sauntered forward. ”This may be where we are told one secret… I would assume that it is inside that we figure out how to keep it.” He glanced over at her from the corner of his eye. ”As far as any other secrets others will have this evening… Those seem like they are *all* fair game.” He flashed his pearly whites at her for a moment, moving down the hall with Brielle. They were accosted by the man at the reception desk for the banquet hall. In a gesture that was more reminiscent of a dancer temporarily parting ways with his dance partner, he agilely took her hand and stepped away, releasing her hand elegantly when her arm was nearly fully stretched. Khalil was, apparently, someone with a bit of knowledge of formal dancing. Or maybe he was just something of a showman… Or both.

The knockout raven-haired beauty walked over to both of them, greeting them with an enthusiasm that was contagious. She was beautiful and her dress clung to her for dear life, and she damn well knew it. She had all the exuberance of a woman who had just liberated herself from a heavy weight and just wanted to enjoy her life. He could understand that. When she seemed unsure on how to approach him to greet him, his dark eyes and curled smile answered for her. Gracefully, he took her hand, bent over slowly and, keeping his eyes locked to hers, kissed her hand. Not a single word was said, which added a little sprinkle of mystery to the moment.

With a devilish smile he stepped aside, smooth and quiet, allowing the ladies all the time and space they needed. Taking a slow sip of his cocktail, he glanced at her while feigning interest at the evening’s activities. Tarot reading could be good for a laugh, he guessed. “Do you have someone in your family whose name starts with the letter J? ...K?... L?” And so on and so forth, until the “fortune-teller’s cold read actually caught something. The audience leaning forward, the pupils dilating… When he was a child, he had listened religiously to the soothsayers. They claimed to see in the past and the future… But truth be told, what they said was so vague and unclear that it was just ludicrous to him when he crew a critical mind. But… It was entertainment. He would take it as such.

Shoulders against the wall behind him, cocktail glass in hand, one foot crossed over the other, he waited with a patience that was surprising. Most men, especially somewhat younger men, did not know the concept of patience. They wanted everything, immediately, RIGHT NOW. Khalil moved, spoke and lived like he had all the time in the world. Like every second would stretch on forever.

Yet another strange moment of what could really only be described as either premonition or Dèja Vu...the woman in the blue dress making her little basketball shot as he held her glass in his hand. He couldn't help but to crack a grin, watching as she seemingly tried to play it off as if nothing had happened."Edwards. Joseph Edwards." Joseph spoke in introduction, reciprocating the handshake.

"I do have to ask where you got your drink, I could use one myself." His eyes would reflexively move between the contours of her face and the window at the front of her azure garment, the deep blue complimenting both her skin tone and her curves, a softer shape compared to the broad planes of the body of Edwards. Her face seemed oddly familiar, and yet, he knew they had never met before this very moment.

Standing in front of Breezy and her newest acquaintance, the lady in blue bent forward to whisper something to their host. Breezy couldn't help but trail her eyes up from the woman's heels, along her toned legs, and over her... ahem. She found herself staring and started to wonder what kind of cocktails they were serving. Scrumptious, really. And the drink was good too.

The man she had spoken to was soon addressing Breezy in a mysterious tone that made her feel extra fancy. Lady Midnight? Perhaps she was allowed to be a bit more free in this outfit than she normally would be. That sense of easeshe felt and the stregnth of her drink might prove this to be a very exciting evening. She took a secret from the host's hat, thanked the masked man, and then spied at it just long enough to see what it said. Well, well. That would be interesting for others to guess for sure! She had just enough time to tuck the small slip of paper into her clutch while Khalil practically twirled her in the air as they parted for a moment. Her eyes tracked him with just a hint of sadness when ... muah! She found herslf face to face with the gorgeous woman herself.

With a blush and a giggle, she returning the compliment on the Lady in Blue's attire and attempting to match the air kisses. "It's very nice to meet you, Becky. I'm Breezy. And thanks, you look gorgeous!" She cleared her throat; a look was an understatement. Had she caught Breezy staring? She hoped not! Not someone who usually looked at women in any way sexual, it was still hard not to find the buxom gal attractive.

It was almost a relief when Becky started to fix her dress and walked over to greet a gentleman who had been standing behind herself and Khalil. She would definitely have to catch up with Becky later - to ask about her wardrobe and ... other things. If Breezy wasn't mistaken, she had been one of the ladies in the pool she had waved at earlier. But what of Khalil? Her thoughts drifted back to what he had said about secrets, and she scanned the room for where he had gone. Ah, there, by the wall.

"So... did you get your secret too?" Stepping over to rejoin him, she leaned in close as if to peek at his slip of paper but she knew it wouldn't be that easy. "I don't know how well I will play this game but... I take a fairly pretty picture if I do say so myself." She finished her drink and reached across him to set her glass on a nearby bartop. Breezy motioned toward the photo booth. Perhaps he would allow her to get a few snaps in with him before all her well-placed curls came undone. "Care to join me in the tiny booth?" It was not forgotten that they hadn't even exchanged names yet.

Then....

Becky had to admit, she found the man's silence rather intriguing. It just raised so many questions! Questions that she made up her mind to try to get answers to later. Or at least try. Or at least try to try. Or at least think about it right now and then not actually follow through. You know, one of the above. Her confidence didn't always last the whole night, no matter how great all the eyes on her were making her feel at the moment!

Speaking of which, ah, Breezy? "Damn right you are." Becky said with a smile back, letting the back of her knuckle trace along a strand of the woman's red hair as they slowly pulled away from each other. She recognized that look on her face. Oh yes. Normally Becky was the one wearing it, she knew it very well. Mmmm. Maybe this was the one to find out more about later. She almost regretted having to step aside and let them get their secrets.

Now...

"Oh I grabbed it when I walked in." She said with a smile. Perk of being a beautiful woman in a skimpy dress, there's always someone putting a drink in your hand. And a place like this you don't even have to worry about what's in it!

"But if you want, the bar's right over there. Once you've got your secret maybe that's where you should head?" She took a sip from her glass. "Speaking of which...." She gave him a smile and reached out and squeezed his hand. "Nice meeting you Joseph, see you around!" She said happily, then turned and walked away from him as attractively as she could manage.

She made it to the bar, maintaining her aura of easy, confident, sensuality the whole time. It was only when she finally reached it that she slumped over the bar and her face took on a "freaking out" look as she beckoned the bartender over frantically, setting her empty glass and purse there.

"Okay, Hi!" She said, not the tone at all of a woman speaking to a servant but one of the people addressing one of her working class equals as she broke cover from her infiltration of the well to do. "My name's Becky!" She said introducing herself quickly, but there was no time for chit chat as she whispered desperately, "I need a drink for a girl who's trying to act classier than she is and needs to keep it going. Like, I don't know what that is, but you know something like -" she said, speaking with her hands, waving them at the elbow as she stood at the bar. She stopped talking as she had happened to glance down and see his heels. "Oh wow those are nice!" She said, almost doing a double take, genuinely impressed and caught off guard.

Damn, the bartender is wearing nicer heels than me! She thought, another sting at her pride. No, no, keep it up, there's nothing wrong with that Becky, she chided herself. He'll know a drink that will fix this, bartenders always do!

He had just set the containers of various fruits along the bar when a lovely lady approached the bar. An easy smile pressed at his lips as he moved over across from her, blue eyes staring into hers for a moment before straying just a bit downward and then back up. She was absolutely beautiful. The dress was one that was unexpected for the event and therefore made her absolutely intriguing.

As she tried to explain what she wanted, a soft chuckled rumbled from his chest, it was not derogatory but more slightly amused and understanding. Ah yes, it was obvious the pressure of the event was getting to her. It was understandable given the whole mood of it all. "I know just the thing." He smiled and gave her a small wink as he grabbed the fanciest glass they had and set it in front of her and started to gather the liquor.

"For what it's worth, I think you look classy regardless of what you hold in your hand." As he began adding things to the glass, he glanced up at her, moving over to the fruit and gazing at them intently as he decided what to add in.

As the shoes were mentioned, he held out his leg and looked down at them for just a moment. "Thank you. They really just were too perfect for the outfit. I couldn't help myself." He said easily as he began grabbing out fruit from the containers. Taking a knife he began peeling the lime, setting the rind curl aside and popping the actual lime part into his mouth playfully, trying to help put her at ease.

It had taken a bit of time but eventually he had finished, and pushed the cocktail toward her, hoping it would help boost her confidence. "I can't promise that it will taste fantastic, but it's the prettiest drink I know off the top of my head." He ran his fingers through his hair with a bit of a bashful shrug, his eyes meeting hers once again as he began placing the liquors back into their rightful place.

JJ's reaction set her at ease. Slightly. She wasn't in a mindset that she could really be made to relax with just a sympathetic smile, but it sure didn't hurt. He was very good looking, not what she'd call feminine at all, and to a woman like Becky who had spent so much time in very traditional settings it was odd to see a handsome, good looking man, wearing anything feminine. But it worked for him. It really did. Heck, if he can wear those shoes and look fab, I can wear this dress and be calm, she thought to herself. Don't think about that too much, she reminded herself, it's not really the same thing.

"Shut up." She whispered to herself. Oh god, you're losing it it Becky. "Oh god sorry." She put her hands over her mouth, obviously not speaking to him just freaking out a little. "Not you I was talking to - " she paused. "And you have really good taste by the way, they look amazing. But still, I really need that - "

And he handed it to her. "Oh thank god." She took a deep sip of it, no camel that came to Caravanserai had ever been so desperate for water as she was for this drink. "Oh wow." She said afterwards. It was like nothing she'd ever had before. "It's really - " she paused. "I don't know what the word for that taste is." She admitted with a laugh, but a relaxed laugh, "But it's good!" She smiled and then held it up, admiring the glass and composition. "And damn it does look classy."

She already trusted his fashion sense, probably more than her own. So she leaned in a little and whisper. "Be honest, it doesn't like, make my dress like too trashy in comparison right? Like?" She stepped back from the bar a bit so he could see her up and down. "Is it too much?" She glanced down at the very deep neck. "It's too much isn't it. Oh god why did I wear this." She took another sip, instantly appearing calm. "Wow this works great." She said with a smile at him. "But uh, still?" she motioned towards her cleavage again and gave him a questioning look.

Another easy laughed escaped him as she spoke to herself. "No offense taken." He finished cleaning up the mess and stood before her again. No one else was in need of him at the moment, so she had his undivided attention as she took the first drink. He sure hoped it tasted good. That was one he had learned off of Mixology and it was very likely he got the measurements wrong. The laugh and compliment made a slight look of relief wash over him. "I'm so glad you like it."

As she leaned in close, he leaned in as well to hear, a confused look on his face at first before he realized what was going on. It became quickly obvious that she was panicking again and he gave her a little look as if they were in this together. It was human nature to be self conscious and this event could make even the most confident worry, he presumed.

When she backed up, he let his eyes wander up and down. I mean, she had asked him to look. Did his gaze stay just a little bit longer on her bosom? Maybe. Not to an extent of being uncomfortable as he did it again, placing a hand on his beard and running his fingers through it as he looked.

"Hmm." He said slowly before letting his blue eyes meet hers. "I think..." His eyes softened and a kind smile crossed his lips. "I think that you make that drink look trashy." Jesse's eyes shimmered with sincerity as he spoke. He loved the outfit. It was unexpected and he loved that she had been daring enough to not wear black which seemed like most would wear to this occasion and to not be afraid to break those expectations by showing a bit more skin. Okay, and it was a nice view, but that wasn't the main reason he approved.

A devious smile replaced the one he had before as he took the towel off his shoulder, twisting it around his hand for something to do. "There is one thing that may improve the overall look." He commented with a wink. "A smile. Please, just enjoy yourself. You look amazing and belong here just as much as any of these other ladies and gentleman." He hadn't been telling her to smile because that's what was expected of women, no, it was truly because she deserved to have fun here. She just needed to try and relax a bit.

Joseph watched the bodies move around the room, Becky seemed even more of a fish out of water than he did. In truth, that drew her to him even more that her blue dress with the interesting and attractively placed window. Sure, that was attention grabbing and aesthetically pleasing...it roused thoughts not meant to be shared in mixed company...but, there was something about her, and he had to figure out exactly what that was...or, at least find a way to get some private time with her, and that was all the more challenging, considering the other men in the room.


After grabbing the "secret" he had heard referenced, Joseph found his way to the bar. Looking for the barman, he saw that Becky had thought the same thing. "Well, hello again, Miss Becky." Joseph made his greeting and then let the bartender finish speaking with her before he took the opportunity to ask for a drink of his own. In that time, he saw more familiar things. Becky's glass, the bartender's shoes...where had he seen these things from, and how did this all feel so familiar?


"Woodford Old Fashioned. Please and thank you." Joseph was a simple man, of simple pleasures. Once he found something he liked, he tended to stick to it. If one knew their alcohol, it would be a blatant clue as to the kind of man Joseph Edwards was.

Becky waited nervously, maintaining her pose as JJ scrutinized her. She was nervous, nearly to the point of sucking in her lower lip and nibbling it, a nervous habit she hadn't displayed in years, but she had been through many fancy events in her previous life and she could deal with this. Right? He hesitated in his answer and she felt herself dying inside. No nervous breakdowns Becky. You've come here to avoid that.

But then he delivered his assessment and it was like a huge weight lifted off of her bare shoulders. So huge she thought she might just float away. She reached out and took his hand squeezing it softly. "Thank you." She whispered, her ears nearly tearing up. She closed her eyes, hand still on his, and took a deep breath. Get it together Becky. You can do this. And now, she finally thought she could.

She opened her eyes and was indeed smiling. She squeezed his hand again. "Thank you." She repeated again. "I'd kiss you if you weren't behind the bar." She laughed.

She'd regained her confidence just enough that her mini-freak out had totally passed when Joseph approached again.

"Well hi there." She said, turning to him with an easy, confident, manner. "Did you get your secret?"

"Yes ma'am, I did." Joseph would put his native accent on, finding that it usually helped him with charming others."Having a secret is one thing, but I find that keeping a secret is a bit of a lost art." A sly chuckle and a wink, now. "Of course, I find it no secret that you seem to be a bit out of your element. I get it. Trust me, I'm not exactly used to being in such fancy places myself." He hoped that by sympathizing with her, maybe it would get her to open up just a bit more. Of course, actively trying to learn other people's secrets was something he had been taught to be rude. But, something about this place seemed to be that what some consider to be basic manners is nothing more than a binding chain.

His drink seemed to be taking a bit longer than expected. Either somebody else was behind him, or the bartender's attentions were caught up in the same place as his own. Of course, when those attentions are on a woman with such a spectacular build as Becky's, it could be understood that her femininity was powerful enough to sway even the strongest male resolve.

As his hand was taken, he squeezed it reassuringly, his eyes glittering as the woman regained her confidence. The confidence looked lovely on her. A laugh even rumbled through his chest as she mentioned kissing him. "I may end up having to take you up on that at some point." He winked.

When the other man approached, he gave a nod to help the woman with her confidence before backing away slightly. No one wanted the bartender all up in their business, although, he did hear when a drink was ordered. With a smile and a nod, he tossed the towel over his shoulder again and set to making it. His attentions were not on the woman's body, it was just as likely they were on the well-dressed man if that were the case, but he wasn't that kind of man. It just so happened that drinks took a little bit of time to make.

Adorning the drink with an orange, he set it on the bar and slid it over to the waiting man with a nod, not wanting to interrupt their conversation. They did have secrets to try and discover, after all.

Becky gave JJ a wink, well once again she tried through her mask and once again ended up with more of a blink than anything else, she really had to learn how to wink. Or stop trying. The bartender was a charming man and she was glad he was around. Hopefully she'd catch him off work, or when the bar was emptier, some other time. But she knew he'd have a lot to do so she just gave him a little wave as he went back to work and a bright smile to say thank you again.

"Well." She said turning to Jospeh as the fairly plain talking man joined her. "I'm guessing you're from someplace small too?" She shrugged at him, "People don't talk so plain in the big cities." She didn't say plain as an insult, far from it. "But now that you know your secret, what's a girl gotta do to learn it?" She asked, giving her drink a little swirl in her hand as she gave him a smile, hoping he might prove a little more interesting now.

His drink would finally arrive, and Joseph would give a small nod to the bartender. Taking a sip, he found his spirits tempering, and suddenly the odd familiarity of this place finally seemed to stop being so unsettling. He would turn his attentions back to Becky, trying to find his words once more. As he had guessed, she was a small town girl at heart. That knowledge would serve to be of benefit to him.


"Born in a little place called Franklin, Kentucky. Right near the Tennessee border. Spent the last fifteen years residing in Nashville. And you're right. Cities like Nashville and Atlanta...people tend to spin a world around their words. I'm more of the "speak softly and carry a big stick" type. As for secrets...normally I'd say that being in the company of a girl like you would be more than enough to make me wax autobiographical. But...we're in a game of secrets, and I'm playing to win." Joseph Edwards, with his voice like black satin, was definitely playing his cards. Whether he was playing them right...that was for Becky to decide.

"Suit yourself." Becky said with a smile. She put her drink down on the bar and placed her hands on it so she could slide up onto one of the low-backed stools, reaching under it she hung her purse on the easy to locate hook and crossed her legs, giving the stool a little push so that it swirled around so she could sit at the bar while facing the room as a whole. It wasn't exactly a graceful maneuver, but it wasn't exactly hard on the eyes either.

"So," she said, changing the topic, "Who's your pick to win the costume contest?" She motioned subtly to Breezy and Khalil as they took their turns at the secret table, "I told those two they'd win for sure if it was a couples deal. That dress is just gorgeous on her don't you think?" She asked, taking in the woman again. "And his suit is just so snazzy the stripes look great on him." She smiled at Joseph to see what he thought.

Joseph would grab the stool next to Becky's and take a seat. Once he had, he turned himself around in order to scan the room. Looking at the two that Becky had pointed out, Joseph took a moment to examine them before weighing in on what he thought. "Between you and her, I have to say that you are definitely wearing the better dress. Don't get me wrong, a black dress is a classic statement. And it's a classic statement for a reason. But...all black in a setting where the décor is black...I think that's points off. In comparison, we have you. In a black room, wearing a bold blue dress. Black and blue together usually connotes bruising, and most people would never pair them outside of that. But...I think it works well for you. You've somehow complemented and clashed against the environment at the same time." Joseph took another sip of his drink, using the opportunity to pace his words.


"As for the gentlemen in the room...the pinstriping is yet another classic statement...but I think that it'll come down to the masks for us. After all, there are only so many variations of the three piece suit. Of course...that's a positive, for the most part. It allows for ornamentation. But...in a contest of the best dressed, you can't just pick a winner by the suit. But, the gentleman you've pointed to seems as if he's got the best chance." Joseph finished speaking, letting his words carry their weight.

When the greeter had offered him his note describing his secret to keep, Khalil looked at it with a mixture of surprise and amusement. He wasn’t sure how he was going to play this out to both keep it a secret and actually give people a chance to GUESS that secret… But he’d figure something out. Or not. He used to take these things seriously. To win, to succeed… To be number one. But now… Now he was just happy to be alive.

Lady Midnight walked over, curious little red-headed beauty wanting to spy in on his reading. Khalil actually flipped the paper over to show her what was written on it. But he was moving it in a diagonal way, from bottom-right to top left, and at a speed that was just enough that someone could see that there were words, but not quite make up what was written on it. And as he did that, he also approached his head so that when he finally folded the piece of paper back up and tucked it into his palm, their masks were nose to nose. ”It can’t be *that* easy.” He grinned at her. ”But depending on what secrets you want to learn… Who knows? The night is still young.” He gave her a bit of space now, but tapped his chin for a moment.

”Vanilla… Or coconut?” He seemed to be guessing at her perfume. ”Regardless… It suits you.” She maneuvered deftly, reaching out across him to put her glass down besides him, on the small counter. Another whiff, and she offered for them to… ”Already you want to drag me into a dark corner, just the two of us? But I don’t even know your name yet…” Khalil teased. ”You’re bold. I like that.” He admitted, pushing himself off of the wall with his shoulders, allowing for her to go in. ”Ladies first.”

Wearing: little black dress with heels, a black mask, and this necklace
Location: Event Hall/Masquerade Ball, Entrance
Tagging: Khalil

As forward as Breezy was being, Khalil matched it with a calm and natural swagger that made her heart flutter. That certainly wasn't helped when he almost showed her his secret and then touched their masks together. She took a small intake of breath away how much he affected her with a big grin or giggle.

Perfume? Was she wearing perfume? She would certainly take the credit, but it was possibly the decadent after-sun lotion that she had rubbed onto her skin after her dip in the pool. "Coconut..." She confirmed to him and ran the tips of her fingers across her forearm to pull more of that sweet scent off her skin. "And actually... I have a plan for both our names and our secrets." Breezy sent a little wink his way before heading towards the small photo booth.

The book looked like any other you might find at a mall, but it had an old-timey, gothic feel to it and promised black and white photos with that dramatic faded look to them. She pulls aside the curtain and stepped in but didn't sit down just yet. It was a comfortable fit for two, but Breezy wanted to continue that bold streak that had risen to the surface in her. When he finally sat, she would angle herself so that she was positioned with her rear and upper thighs across his lap so the camera lens could still see them both. "Comfy? Thank you for helping me keep my dress clean." One of her hands to settle on his shoulder, sneaking behind to run her fingers along the nape of his neck.

"So... my plan." She sat up a little as a picture of them was taken together. Flash! Then the machine gave them a moment to shift. "What if we share our names one letter at a time. And each letter costs a tiny clue as to each other's special secret?" She grinned big before leaning close to kiss his cheek as another picture was taken.

In a secluded part of the ball room a small tent had been erected, a board declared that fortunes and palm readings were within. A cleverly hidden ice maker pumped in a small amount of fog and within the tent a figure sat ensrouded in semi darkness hooded and masked the woman peered out of at party.

So Lady Midnight had slid upon his lap for the pictures, making herself quite comfortable indeed. She and her perky backside slipped upon his body with ease, and the first picture was almost reminiscent of times past, with two masked, almost expressionless individuals, facing the camera. It was a lovely picture, with the magnificent locks of red hair stealing the show and giving the picture a vivid splash of color.

Then she decided to get a little bit frisky, moving herself slightly and brushing his hair with her fingertips. She had a plan and shared it with him. A game within a game. The moment she had finished with her plan, she approached and kissed his cheek for the second picture. Khalil had timed the waiting period in between flashes now. He turned and brought his hand to her beautifully sculpted chin, tilting it downward ever so slightly so that they were eye to eye, and mask-nose to mask-nose. There was a sudden impact of seriousness in his eyes now, as if things had taken a sudden, bolder turn.

He spoke slowly, deliberately. ”Let this be an act of generosity, then. Both my name and this secret begin with the same letter.” And as he finished speaking, there was a quiet moment, where their eyes were locked together… and Flash! The third picture was taken. And a small, knowing smirk appeared back on his face and he gently let his fingertips brush alongside her chin and jawline. ”Now then, Lady Midnight… You have but a few short seconds to decide how this moment will be immortalized for a fourth time. Whatever shall you choose...?” The tone of his voice was that of curiosity, of interest… Or was that a challenge? Or maybe she was hearing whatever she very well pleased to hear, at this point. Maybe it was the cocktail speaking to her in his voice. Or maybe the dim lighting, their *very* close proximity, the way his hand was upon her bared knee… Wait, when did THAT happen? The closeness of their faces, her fingertips in his hair, their bodies so damn close...

Becky almost laughed. "No way, her dress is way better." She said, thinking not for the first time that she should find out more than a few secrets about the woman if she could. Although she knew what Joseph really meant, she knew it wasn't her dress . She at least agreed with him on Khalil.

"Well." She said, realizing the gentleman wasn't providing many topics of his own. "You uh, come here often?" She tried.

Joseph spent a moment looking for words. Being the silent type wasn't always very conducive to meaningful conversation.
"Honestly...the whole thing is a new adventure for me...before two weeks ago, I had barely been beyond 300 miles of home." There was still something of an odd familiarity to this room, but he didn't exactly want to admit that. "I have to admit, I swear I've seen you before." That was true, he had seen her face before. But he wasn't quite able to place where.


"Are you by chance part of the industry? Like a rapper's girlfriend or an up and coming R&B artist?" Of course, for all he knew she was. After all, she did have that certain feature that a man like Sir Mix-A-Lot wrote an anthem about...but, having been part of the music industry as long as he had, that wasn't quite right...but, he was trying to keep decorum alive, and too many questions could be seen as off-putting.

"Sounds like me until...." she trailed off as he asked his question. Her face twitched.

She instantly took another gulp of her drink, which seemed to calm her as she took a deep breath.

"Well that would be a lazy stereotype to make of my life." She said with indignation that she hoped would be clear was just pretend, or at least it would be when she finished her sentence, "Rapper's Girlfriend? No way!" She paused for effect then rolled her eyes at herself at set her glass down again. "I'm an athlete's ex-wife." She laughed and spoke with her hands indicating something very big, "Huge difference!" She tried to laugh. She did. But had just made herself disappointed in herself again.

She then sighed melodramatically, blowing air out of her cheeks until her lips flapped together in a pffffffft. "Yeah so anyway they showed me on the sidelines sometimes I guess, I got cameras and microphones shoved in my face a bunch." She shook her head. "It was awful." At least that she was completely sincere about.

Ren wasn't surprised she was late.  She'd snuck away from her bodyguard, a task that was not easy before going to the shop.  She'd spent nearly a quarter of an hour picking out what she thought would look good on her only for the shop keeper to point out the outfit she wore instead.  It wasn't anything like what she had originally seen herself in but when she'd put it on, she felt more beautiful than ever.  It was a black dress with a sweetheart neckline bedazzled to look as elegant yet mystifying as the night sky, filled with stars.  Then he pointed out a mask that seemed to be made for the dress and her heart skipped a beat.  Now, with the decor of the room, she felt like she was in a dream.

Sure, she was here alone.  Sure, it seemed everyone had coupled up before she really got to meet anyone.  Still, it was amazing just to be here and Ren believed she would find something to do.  Gliding into the room, she found herself not trying to entice anyone.  With the mask on, keeping who she really was secret, she simply watched, finding a seat at one of the nearby tables.  Couples danced around her and talked in separate areas of the room and she just watched.  People were interesting if you really took the time to pay attention.  The way they moved ever so slightly in an attempt to flirt with someone or subconsciously adjusted something as small as their posture to fit in with whoever they were spending time with.  Chances like this, where she was alone, she was content to people watch but she still couldn't help wanting someone to talk to or even something to do.

As her eyes flitted about the room, she checked out the snack and drinks bar.  She knew she'd get a drink later but not quite yet.  There was a check-in booth where newcomers were receiving secrets but she'd already stopped there.  She already received a secret.  Then there were the voting booths for costume competitions but she wasn't ready for that.  Not yet.  Lastly, her eyes landed on a fortune telling booth.  The heiress was almost interested.  She would have walked over but it made her nervous.  What if she was told something she didn't want to hear?  She wasn't about to take that chance so she settled into her seat.

An athlete's ex-wife...maybe he had seen her face on ESPN when playing at a sports bar...or one of those celebrity magazines in a Wal-Mart checkout aisle...that must be it. That's the only real explanation as to why this all seemed so familiar. "Sorry. When you're playing on everyone else's records for a decade and a half, you tend to see a lot of faces." An awkward chuckle escaped him, now he was the nervous, stumbling mess.


A new person was walking in now. "What do you think?" Joseph asked as he pointed the new woman out. Maybe the change in topic would keep things from growing more awkward. "Yet another black dress..." He said, his voice trailing off as he began to scan the room with more attention to detail. "I know, I'm dressed in all black too...but I've had this suit for twelve years. It's the one I wear every time I need a suit. Even though I've more money than one man could reasonably spend in a lifetime, I can't see myself spending obsessively...I'm so used to an apartment with a Murphy Bed, going without a meal for two and three days at a time, living like I was a pauper...having enough money to buy anything I could ever want is...weird." Yet another pause.



"...But, enough about me...." Now it was his turn to awkwardly giggle. "You come here often?" A reference to what Becky had said to him earlier.

He followed her, she couldn’t get away.  They were out in the middle of nowhere, anyone that wanted to harm her and killed her simply had to be here already and know where they were.  She was pretty safe.

 Even when she called herself sneaking out, he found himself looking at her from a distance.  It was then that he left her, seeing she found what she was looking for.  He, on the other hand, went to find something to wear to the ball.  It didn’t take him much time as all he needed was the mask as he had a suit already, several actually as he was rather good with his dress and outfits, given the places that he had been stationed.  He had unfolded the outfit and steamed it with him in the shower.  He wasn’t going to go before her, so he waited till she left. 

She wouldn’t recognize him in the full mask, that and the gloves on his hands.  She would probably be flirting with someone there, he would do the same.  He could be out and about and still keep an eye on her.  She could have her night of freedom which she seemed to try to get with him not being around anyway.  He moved down the steps, he movements were well placed as he walked like a jungle cat.  He was totally aware of his path and her purpose.  He was as his mask claimed him to be, he was a knight.  He was looking for his princess whomever that might be.

Location: Event Hall | Masquerade Ball | Passed through entryway, heading to fortune telling booth.
Tagging: Bartender| Open

After having thanked the bellboy for his advice regarding where to pick up a mask, Laila takes time to take a lengthy shower.  Thrifty as per usual she had packed along her own shampoo and bodywash in travel size and sensible containers.  Upon entering the fully stocked and luxurious bathroom she took time to smell the various luxurious (to her) items that was stocked. Closing her eyes as she found a shampoo that smelled like lilacs she smiled to herself.  Wonder if I could take one of these home? Giving it thought she finally placed her travelsized items to the side and picked up a rose scented bodywash that looked as if it was artisan made, and the lilac shampoo. 

The shower was just what she had needed, and slipping into the dress she had repurposed for this trip she actually felt good.  Having packed several pairs of sandals and sneakers she finally pulled out the only pair of 'fancy' shoes she owned, a pair that pinched with each step and she hated them -but suffering through shoes seemed to be a womans way- so she slipped them on with a grimace, and headed to purchase a mask.

The man that sold this that and the other was rather amicable, and Laila purchased a mask that suited her dark blue dress wonderfully.  "This makes you look wonderful." the man said, and she looked at him and tried to figure out something to say that didn't sound too daft, but found it hard to reply, so instead she simply nodded and paid.  Before leaving she has the foresight to actually thank him and let him know she would come back for a closer look at the store at some other time.

Finally heading to the masquerade -each step was bloody agony- and she tried to keep a straight face. If other women can do this, so can you.  And buy better shoes next time! her constant internal monologue was almost distracting her from the people near the entrance, she gave them a casual nod as she passed by -trying to glide- but it felt more like she was waddling, into a lovely room that she took the time to look at, taking note of a fortune telling booth, she felt herself slowly gravitate towards it.  With a sudden devil-may-care attitude she gently pushed a gauzy veil back to see if she could have her fortune told.  She could hardly knock she reasoned.

Becky didn't pay much heed to Joseph's talk of money. She knew what it was like to have none when people would look down on you for having less than them, or turn to evil just to get a little, she knew what it was like to have more than she'd ever need, where still people would look down on you for having less or spending it the wrong way, or some other dumb excuse to rip people up, and still turn to evil just to get a little. Money was nice to not worry about, but it didn't stop people from being people no matter what they did with it as far as she had seen of this world.

Of course, sometimes money led to beautiful things, like the gorgeous shimmery black evening gown on the woman who walked in. Becky stared at her without disguising it, admiring the dress. "We were supposed to wear black." She reminded Joseph with a smile. "And that may be the best dress so far. I love when they sparkle like that. And she's definitely go the shoulders for it" She smiled at the woman, if she caught her hey she'd wave. "Is everyone here gorgeous?" She asked with a laugh.

Another man walked in, this one rather built, wearing a gold suit and rather helmet-like mask. "That guy didn't get the memo either." She laughed, nodding to him. "I like that mask though, he looks like something from a movie." She couldn't quite decide if 'gladiator' or 'spaceman' was more what she was thinking.

And another joined, and Becky didn't have time to give her much of a lookover before she ducked behind the fortune teller's curtain. "She hates her shoes." She said with the wisdom of a woman who knows what that looks like. "Shoulda asked our bartender for help." She smiled over her shoulder to see if JJ had picked up the compliment.

She laughed at Joseph's question. "No I've never been outside America or Mexico before." She said with a shake of her head. "Pretty sure everyone here can tell that." She glanced around the room. "Well since you aren't giving up your secrets maybe we should split up or make a deal, everything we can learn about someone else we trade each other for later?"

The cloth of the entrance parted and a guest stepped within the shrouded darkness "Welcome, little one" the woman entoned. A hand covered in bangles rang gently as she jestered to the seat before her. "Card or palm, choose wisely" Lalita cautioned. Her hood clearly hid the Indians facial expressions as she laid out a pack of cards to the right and a small purple cloth to the left. She filed her head enough so that the woman facing her would get the impression that Lalita was looking towards her. "Choose" she declared dramatically.

Joseph would look at the people Becky mentioned, suddenly feeling rather underdressed for the occasion. The man in the gold suit stuck out in the same manner that Becky had, but it definitely made him seem more interesting. "They say that rules are made to be broken. After all, sometimes...a splash of the 'wrong' color only serves to make whatever person or thing an ornament in and of themselves...a spot of color in an otherwise monochrome world makes the world itself more beautiful." Joseph had found his charming stride again.


"Well, when you put it that way...if it means your company, I think we could work out a deal. This thing ends in a few hours. Maybe we meet back up at one minute after midnight, share what we've learned, trade secrets?" Joseph was definitely interested in the idea. Of course, he knew that it would be something of a challenge. But, this seemed to be one worth undertaking. After all, Becky was an interesting woman, he could definitely do with spending more time with her.

Becky raised her glasses and clinked it against Joseph's. "May be the best secret finder win." She said with a smile.

Of course this just brought her back to square one. She had no real skill at all at manipulating or convincing people to do anything they didn't already want to do. So, how did she do this? Well, maybe just be sweet little small town Becky and hope people were nice to her? Well, it would have to do until something else came along.

She scanned the crowd. Where to start, where to start, as she sipped her drink.

Little one... Laila looked at the woman and admired the bangles for a moment as she takes a seat.  She had never had her fortune told, but the cards belonged to anyone, her palm was unique -hers alone- with it's flaws and imperfections.  The choice was an easy one and she stretched her arm out.  "Then I would pick a palm reading, please." she murmurs.

Glancing into her palm herself she wondered if there was too much of a past within the lines, and not much room left for any future -much less a fortune- she considered wryly.  "I mean, how does it work, is it someone anyone could do if they read the right books, or is it more of a gift?" she asks before the actual reading begins.  She feels a slight surge of exitement when the woman takes a gentle hold of her wrist to move her hand to get a better look at it.

"Indeed. I will see you one minute after midnight." He would toast with Becky before walking off into the room.


At this point, he was in the same place. Too blunt for manipulative tactics. Of course, he knew that he would have to safeguard his own secret. Then again, he wondered if anyone could possibly believe his secret to be true. This place still had that oddly familiar feel to it. Maybe he had seen pictures in a magazine, maybe it was all a dream, and he was still that little fifteen year old kid that had just found out his mother was getting married.


Shaking his head, he would drain his glass and begin to walk about. He would take stock of the room, the black and red ribbons, the actors moving about the stage. The odd photo booth that looked like it belonged more in a shopping mall than a masquerade...he would sit silently at the bar and let some time pass in silence, watching the people trade partners and take part of the festivities.

"Some things can be learned of course...others are passed on....and some simply known" she declared taking the woman's offered palm and tilting towards the light. Studying it for a few moments she reached out and picked up a small gel pen. The pen was similar to a highlighter in that it would raise the lines that Lalita needed to pay attention to. However the liquid inside was water based and could be remove easily.

Laying Laila's palm on the purple cloth, she drew a line over the palm line in the bottom right."This" she began as she drew "Is your life line" the pen stopped at a sudden of shoot on the life line and Lalita frowned "There is a break in your life, you have either or you are currently questioning the meaning of to your life." the pen continued "However I see you still have many years ahead of you!"

Becky's eyes settled on the man in the gold suit with the crazy mask. He was alone, he had a mask she could use as a conversation starter, and he was the only other one who'd failed th dress code so they had those things to talk about at least. Okay.

She took a breath, pulled her compact out and checked herself, took another sip, and let herself down from her bar stool to cross the room. He'd see her coming, he'd be blind if he didn't, and she smiled at him as she met his eyes.

"Hey there." She said with a sweet voice and a sweeter smile. "I like your outfit. I'm Becky." She extended a hand to him, palm down and fingers pointed, nails that matched her dress catching the light for just a moment.

Laila cracks an awkward smile at this.  "Well, I should hope that I have a few good years in me before I kick the bucket." focusing on the purple cloth for a moment she takes in the depth of the colour -a shade that was intriguing- and made her think of a sweatshirt she had purchased once when she had visited the Disney store just before Halloween. 

"Do you see romance?" she blurts out, and as the words tumbles out she inwardly curses herself before glancing at her palm, if there was anything akin to a telltale love line, hers was likely severed.  Not that she minded, she had told herself such.

Laying down the pen she grasped Lalita's hand in both of hers and looked up. Making eye contact with the red head sat before her she offered her a smile."The road to love has not been kind, however as long as you keep your heart open, it will find you in the end.

Chris couldn’t help but admire the woman crossing the room to stand in front of him.  He saw she was the only one in the blue dress, save for Ren she was…breathtaking.  He was not focused on her tonight he simply stayed there in the moment.  He smirked as he saw her looking in her compact and for a moment he felt sad.  He had no idea who had disillusioned this woman but she was….damn!  It was all he could get out.

He smiled back but realize too late she couldn’t see it with his full mask, he thought himself hiding from Ren but realized with this group, if no one knew who he was he would be surprised.  He moved to gaze into her eyes though as he left his full mask in place for a while still. 

“Hello, gorgeous!!  I love your outfit, I am Chris.”  He took her hand and lifted his mask just enough to kiss the offered hand, bending over only to pull the mask back in place.  “That color looks amazing on you.  Your boyfriend over there must be glad you are with him tonight.”  He nodded towards where Joseph had been.

Wearing: little black dress with heels, a black mask, and this necklace
Location: Event Hall/Masquerade Ball, Photo Booth
Tagging: Khalil, open

He tilted her chin down and directed her gaze. And soon Breezy was eye to eye with those handsome eyes again. She nuzzled the nose of her mask against his and smiled. "Hmm...you're name is Zachariah, and you have worked at a zoo?" There was a playful glint in her eyes. "Mmm... B, and that mask certainly does fit you. It certainly is lucky to be so close." As for their next photo, he was daring her to be even bolder. Not exactly with words but with his presence, his fingers lightly drawing circles on her knee, the way he leaned into her fingers at his neck. He was responding so ... sweetly.

And sweet she would be. Breezy leaned even closer and tilted her head, so her lips pressed softly against his own as there was one last Flash!. But as the bright light dimmed again, she didn't move. Her lips parted and deepened the connection between them. Her fingers slipped up into his hair and gripped slightly as they kissed. But what was this? As she pulled away, she had left him with something to remember that first intimate touch. It was a red gummy bear, in his mouth.

She giggled and pulled a green out one of her clutch, popping it into her mouth. "I bought them at Bits and Bobs while I got my dress." She made a little 'mmm' sound before swallowing. Her fingers still running through his hair, her body still so close.

"I think we are out of photos to take. And yet, it is your turn."

Becky's eyes twinkled merrily as Chris pulled up his mask and kissed her hand. She obviously enjoyed being treated like that. She slowly took her hand back as he let go of it.

"Joseph?" She asked with a smile. "I just met him for the first time. You're as much my boyfriend as he is." It was a little flirty, sure, but he was asking about her boyfriend so she figured he was doing the same. Why not have fun with it?

"But thank you." She said to the compliment about her dress, although she didn't believe for a moment it was the color he was really looking at. "I was just saying so far you and me look like the only ones who managed not to follow the dress code." She glanced around the room a little and shrugged. "I didn't bring any black dresses, what's your excuse?" She asked with a smile as she took a sip of her drink.

Inhaling deeply Laila looked at the fortune teller as if trying to divine some method she might have to her arts.  "Well, it's hard to say just what the future brings, guess that's half the charm of it.  But for now I believe I can divine my immediate future, and it contains a glass of white wine." she smiles nervously, unwilling to admit that fortune telling slightly unnerved her.

"Thank you for your predictions, if they come true I will make sure to let you know." she offers the woman a slight smile that wanes again as she gets up to leave, feeling a pinch that digs a bit too hard.  Heading to the bar she finds a stool and orders a glass of wine when she catches the waiters attention.  Looking around at other guests she does not allow her gazr to linger long enough for it to be considered staring.

Joseph had sat at the bar for several minutes, watching the actors move about the stage. He felt trapped in his own gilded cage, still in revelation of how familiar this all had felt. Now on his third Old Fashioned, he felt as if he were drowning in the sea of faces. The itch for a cigarette gnawed at him just a bit. Of course, he knew that he would have to go hunting for secrets soon. After all, he had a date to keep with Becky and he couldn't exactly show up empty handed.

Watching the young woman leaving the Fortune Teller's Booth, he figured it would be a good idea to go to it himself. Sure, he wasn't much a believer in the occult and the arcane, but watching such divinations occur was always fun. Downing his drink, he would stroll over and walk in through the curtain. He had seen this before as well...

Chris couldn’t help but to laugh, it was a hearty laugh too.  “Please if I was your boyfriend we wouldn’t be here!  Or we would have arrived much later and seeing you in that dress…we would be leaving early too!”  He said as a matter of fact.  He was glad that it was a fill mask as she would have seen his eyes not only roaming her form but drinking her in as well, only one other had invoked this much desire within him.

“Then I supposed that means we need to stick together more.  I do have a spare mask underneath if this unnerves you.  Unless you also want to see where my eyes are going too, but you probably already know I love your eyes.”  He looked at her.  “Didn’t see the mask protocol and didn’t want to wear black.  You make it a point to make everything you wear look so good?”  He asked licking his lips, which she couldn’t see as he looked through his eye holes to enjoy her everything about her at this moment.

Becky couldn't help but let out a little laugh as Chris told her what would occur if they were dating. She smiled at him then glanced down again then back up, obviously flattered as her eyes continued to sparkle and her fingers danced around her drink and ran over her hair. This also kept her body in motion, which surely didn't hurt in keeping his attention on it.

"Well I don't know about that." She said, her smile a bit of a challenge, indicating she enjoyed this sort of compliment.

"I like that mask." She said, finally finding something to do with her hand as she raised it up and ran it over the surface of it delicately, making sure not to damage it at all. "It's really different. I thought everyone would be in something like mine, or maybe more fancy. This is like, from outer space or something, I like it." Of course touching his mask had required her to step in closer, now in his space. She felt comfortable here so far, so why step away?

She glanced down at her dress as he complimented it and shrugged. "Hey, why not look good while we're young?" She smiled. "Wouldn't wanna say I missed the chance when I'm old." She laughed.

He loved her laugh and smirked as she looked up at him.  He noticed her looking down, it made him frown that someone had broken her so that she didn't believe she was beautiful.  He lifted her chin up to face him. 

"I do and we would I assure you!"  He said enjoying her smile also.

"Thank you was a bit difficult to find around here, but this place seems to have a good selection."  He said.  "Thought I would be a dime a dozen too around here.  Should have just went for Zorro."  He said as she moved closer he did too so his hands were resting on her lush hips now.

"You most certainly look that, that is for sure.  I doubt when you are old you still won't look delicious."   He said as he moved a hand up to caress her cheek.

"Zorro would suit you." Becky said with a smile. She felt Chris's hands at her hips and she wasn't exactly slapping them away anytime soon. But she felt compelled to give it a reason. The band was already warmed up, and she may as well be one of the first ones dancing for once. She'd come here to stop being a wallflower, right?

"So, are we dancing?" She said, glancing down at his hands on her hips with an accusing smile. "Because I think we're supposed to do that over there." She nodded her head towards the dance floor.

"I don't know.  I am more of a katana guy than rapier.  He was enjoying her presence and her closeness and definitely didn't realize that the band was in a certain area so much as he was struck by being near and close to her. 

"I thought we were doing great right here, but sure I will take any excuse I can to keep you in my arms."  He chuckled.  "Unless there is some place else that you wanted to dance?"  He moved to walk with her with his arm around her waist.    "Any particular dances that you know?"

Ren couldn't help but look when she saw the glimmer of gold entering the room.  What she saw pleased her greatly.  A mountain of a man dressed in a familar gold suit.  The figure's muscles threatened to rip open the arms of the suit and though he tried to hide among the crowd in a suit he'd only worn once, Ren recognized exactly who he was.  It was the man who took the job as her bodyguard because she could not tell him why she begged him not to.  The man who Ren had a crush on as a young girl and who she found herself only wanting more the more time they spent together.

Normally she would taunt him, tease him, remind him exactly hat the rules about keeping his job meant he couldn't have but tonight she could pretend she had no clue who was hiding under that mask.  Tonight, she could pretend to pour her heart out to a stranger, knowing full well the face that was hiding under his mask.  Now she was determined to reveal truths she dared not say to his face.  As she got up, she found she was too late.  Another woman had taken interest in the man the heiress so secretly, so desperately wanted to love her.  Ren could feel her guts tying in knots, waiting to see his reaction to her.

He greeted her as though he wanted her and that struck the blonde's heart into many pieces.  She'd had so many years of chances.  She could have told him any time but she'd waited.  She wanted him to make the first move but he never did.  She wanted him to tell her her affections were reciprocated, he never did.  She should told him.  She'd tried to show him so many times and he never took notice of her.  Whether he was too oblivious to notice, too dedicated to his job to take a chance, or didn't reciprocate her feelings, Ren never knew.  It appeared she never would now.  His attention, his interest was on the black bitch who'd worn a dress so revealing, she may as well have come naked.

Ren wanted to run out of there.  She wanted to cry her eyes out or hurt the woman who stole her man.  She wanted...it didn't matter what she wanted to do.  He was happy.  As far as Ren knew, he hadn't known love or the touch of a woman since before he became her bodyguard.  She couldn't ruin his chances, not for her own selfish purposes, not when she couldn't bring herself to tell him why.  If she left, it was his duty to follow.  If she got into a fight with this woman, it would be his priority but unlikely his wish to protect her.  No.  Neither were options right now.

Instead, she sucked it up and marched over to the bar.  "I don't care what you give me.  Just so long as it knocks me straight onto my ass."  She told the bartender, keeping her eyes on her bodyguard.  "And keep them coming."  She was starting to believe she'd be alone during this whole party.  If she was drunk tonight and hung over tomorrow, no one would care.  Chris was usually the one to stop her when she was far enough past her limit but she could already tell he'd be too busy to pay attention tonight.  When her drink finally arrived, she wasted no time in downing it and then two more without even coming up for a breath.

Becky stifled a giggle, poorly. "A katana guy?" She said, raising her eyebrows and obviously judging him, even if only jokingly. "You don't look like you spend nearly enough time in your mom's basement for that." She'd only known a few guys in her lives that own swords. Both had lived there. One had been her ex's good friend, the one that she swore was going to murder them all in their sleep one day. The other a kid down the block from her growing up. Neither were the sort she'd be flirting with at a fancy party. Or anywhere else for that matter.

But hey, first time for everything.

She smiled more as he continued his compliments. He sure knew the way to a Becky's heart. "I want to dance where we're supposed to dance." She said, gladly accepting one of his hands as it slid up her up wide hips to her narrow waist, navigating curves like a country backroad to do so, "We've broken enough rules as it is." She smiled at him. Ah, there it was, Becky the good girl coming out again. Don't bore this guy to tears, she chided herself.

"I never know what they're called, I just dance." She said to him. Between her easy southern confidence, pretty good physical shape, and a body that absolutely refused to look bad in motion, she had always found dancing easy enough. "Don't tell me you're gonna look down at me cuz I don't know the fancy moves Mr. Katana." She giggled as she happily took the hand that wasn't occupied with her waist in hers and led him towards the dance area.

She was unaware that she was being watched as she did, and would have been shocked to learn she was 'stealing' someone's crush. But she had no way of knowing it!

“I haven’t been back to my mom’s house since…well for a while.  I had no plans of going back home, I want a woman I can keep and provide for.  My claim to fame is not giving her the keys to my momma’s house.”  He teased.  He didn’t plan on going back home he wasn’t the type, plus only his dad was home, mom got tired of his drinking so she bounced and he hadn’t seen her in awhile.  There was something about her that wanted to take her home that is for sure, there was definitely some chemistry between them, he wasn’t sure he would survive taking this one back to his room.  But even now the thought of making her moan and scream greatly appealed to him.

 “There are a lot of places to dance Becky, here, on the sand, beneath the stars, a pool….lots of different places.  Don’t get mad at me cause I want to try all of them with you.”  He said he clasped his fingers with her own, his other hand just resting on her rear as he moved with her in a tango.  It was nice to feel her close and her body in his hands, he didn’t want her to get away.  “Says who?  I don’t know what rules we have broken, but I haven’t tasted your lips yet.”  He said as he wondered what other rules he could break with her and would she let him.
“I just bet you do.  You could get dressed and have men…me drooling.”  He said moving to caress her body with his own letting their own heat increase his hunger for her.  I am going to look down on you cause I am taller than you and I can’t keep my eyes off of you.  Besides I will show you my moves if you show me yours?”   He moved to take off his larger mask and slip it into his pocket because he really wanted to be closer to her now.  Now only the undermask remained.

Becky let her hands slide up Chris's arms as they turned to face each other on the dance floor, her hands pressing into his very well developed muscles. She was probably less impressed than most women with them, as she'd spent the last few years around NFL players and was used to crazily built up men, but she was still an open minded woman and she still liked big arms on a man.

"Sorry," She said with a shake of her head and a laugh as her hands come a rest on his shoulders. "I've done the kept woman thing, not about to go back there anytime soon." She said. "You won't have to look hard for a girl who wants to be kept by you though, not if you can afford to stay here, and not with these." She let one hand slide down to squeeze his biceps again playfully before it returned to his shoulders.

He really was going all out with the romantic angle, and she couldn't help smile as he talked about dancing under the stars and in the pool and on the beach. "Yeah well, right now I wanna dance here." She said firmly, swaying her hips to the rhythm he established, letting him lead and happy that he could. She didn't mind the hand on her ass at all, in fact she was rather happy he wasn't playing at being something he wasn't. In any event, his hand would feel her wide backside moving with her hips and she didn't ask him to move it.

"The rules of fashion." She said. "This is supposed to a mysterious, gothic masquerade, and we show up looking like spaceman and uh, whatever the heck I look like." She laughed. "You know what I meant!"

"Easy now," she laughed, "I don't have moves. I just do what comes natural." She hadn't meant it to be so suggestive but it was too late and after realizing it she didn't feel bad about it at all. "Besides, how am I gonna convince you to give me your secret if you make me look silly out here?" She smiled at him playfully.

As it had turned out, somehow, someone had beaten him to the Fortune Teller's Booth. 'A shame. I'll go later.' He thought to himself. The couple that had entered the photo booth hadn't made an exit...at least he hadn't seen them make an exit. But, going into those things by yourself is always weird. So, instead, he headed back to the bar.


Upon his return, he took note of the blonde woman who was sitting two stools away. The way she clutched her drink, there was definitely a more Atlantean weight on her shoulders than what a party game could bring. Of course, it seemed her attentions were somewhat focused on Becky and her partner in the gilded suit. "Looks like you've got something on the brain." Joseph said to the woman, unsure as to her name. Of course, he figured he would be a friend for a moment before going back into the lighthearted mode that the secret game brought.

Wearing: Fab Dress and mask

Tagging: Guests | Open

Everyone, at the party, was in high spirits. No matter which direction Ruby looked, there were smiles to be discovered upon people’s faces. Almost everyone had a drink in their hand as they reveled in the freedom of their identities being concealed underneath decorative masks. 

This was her dream, a beautiful vision brought to life. Unlike Coral, Ruby did not obsess over profits or even stress over the hotel’s reputation. Her goal was a simple one. Create a place where memories were born, the type that which helped pull someone out of despair. She knew all too well how it felt to have nothing and no one. Only reflecting on better days and wanting to experience them again helped her escape grief’s cold grasp. People could not remain in their carefully crafted escape forever, after all. They would take their memories of Caravanserai with them back home or wherever the road took them. Hopefully, it would serve as a shining point of laughter and joy in their lives.

With that purpose of being a joybringer in mind, Ruby nodded her head in approval of her aspirations and made her way up the stage’s small set of stairs. Her colorful dress was rather lengthy, making it necessary to lift its skirts from the ground or else she might trip over them. Like the rest of the guests, her face was partially concealed by a mask...only hers was a little more flamboyant than most. Walking across the stage, she offered an excited wave to the guests before taking a stand behind the small podium. A gentle wave of her hand silenced the band.

Leaning forward, she spoke into the microphone. “Testing. Testing. One. Two. Three.” Ruby frowned when her voice did not project like the Great Wizard of Oz.

Just then, Reese rushed onto the stage and did her best to fix the microphone. It was been rather stubborn though, like all devices when there was drastic need of them.
Ruby grew impatient, shooing the blonde away with a motion of her hand.

“Not to worry, dear,” she stepped from behind podium, somehow speaking loud enough to be heard by the bulk of the room. “No one’s ever complained of not hearing my loud mouth.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, and variations thereupon,” Ruby greeted, channeling her favorite Doctor and not the one who constantly nagged her about eating better and drinking less. “You all look marvelous. Thank you all for being here tonight! Thank you for taking a risk and being crazy enough to make the journey to Caravanserai. I encourage you to enjoy the night! It waits for no one. OH! I know you are all playing some secrets game so I will give everyone a leg up.” Reaching into the hidden pocket within the folds of her dress, she pulled out a small piece of paper. “Let’s see. Gosh...this print is small. My secret, you darling people, is that my real name is Wendy and I’m still waiting for Peter Pan to find me. There you have it.

She hadn't noticed anyone else come up to the bar.  She only even paid attention to the bartender enough to keep her drink filled.  Then she heard it, a male voice.  At first she thought there was no way he could be talking to her but when she looked around, she found them to be the only ones there.  It actually brought a bit of a smile to the young woman's face to know that someone wanted to talk to her.  Not just anybody but the man that promiscuous man thief had been talking to when Ren entered the masquerade.

She completely understood why such a clearly thirsty woman would be talking to this man.  He was handsome and though he wore a suit that followed the rules, he still showed a style all his own.  His mask was the most unique part of his outfit, making the heiress think of a movie she'd seen long ago.  She would certainly talk to this man if he wanted to.  But tonight no one knew who she was, no one except Chris who paid her no attention.

With a deep sigh, she turned her entire body away from the dance floor and towards the man who had approached the bar.  She forced a smile on her face and the grip around her glass loosened.  "I'm just not used to being the girl hanging out by herself."  It wasn't what she was focused on but it was still the truth.  Still, Alexandrena knew she was a bad liar.  She believed too much in telling the truth that she usually had to tell a half truth or a truth that wasn't pertinent to even slightly get away with her lies.

"That's a great outfit."  She offered a compliment, hoping he wasn't going to walk away as quickly as he had come over.  "The mask actually reminds me of this movie..."  She stopped and tapped a finger to her chin as if she was trying to remember the movie she was thinking of.  "Oh!  I know!"  She said, practically jumping out of her stool.  "Your secret must be that you live under an opera house, teaching young women with great potential how to sing and most people call you the Phantom?"  It was obviously meant as a joke and actually brought a little chuckle to the blonde's voice.

Even as she spoke to this man, her mind was on how she assumed Chris to be feeling all over the woman who'd stolen Ren's chance.  How he danced with her, their bodies rubbing together as though it was foreplay for later.  She'd seen him remove his mask and thought of the way she wished he would kiss her, only it wasn't her he saw with tongues battling.  Ren wished the night could be over.  She wished she could just drink herself stupor already but that wouldn't be any time soon.  She was good with her drinking and it didn't hit her until it hit her hard.

Being fashionably late had gone out of fashion a long time ago, but it never got old, which is why I turned up with the masquerade ball already seemingly in full flow—at least that would be my excuse if anyone asked why I hadn’t been seen since I checked in at reception this morning.

The truth was, after checking over my room, and getting it just the way I wanted it, I had spent the rest of the day working my way through the vast hotel and grounds; making careful notes about locations, activities, potential bolt holes and escape routes, and (most importantly) the distance one would have to travel to get a drink around here. By the time I was satisfied that I had carefully drawn the appropriate map, with useful key and diagrams on it that would stand me in good stead at the resort, I found myself temporarily unaware of my exact location in correlation with where I needed to be.

In short, I got lost.

Having turned back up to my room to find the flier for the masquerade ball, I’d rushed inside and got ready as quickly as I could; thankful of an old case in Venice that had left me with something appropriate to wear.

Now, finally approaching the entrance to the ball, three things were hitting me simultaneously:

1)   It was quite a swanky affair, with a great number of people to get to know.
2)   There was a theme of secrets, which fit a PI like me like a kid in a candy store.
3)   I suspected I’d not only put my knickers on back to front in my rush, but inside out too which, considering the lack of material in the lacy design to begin with, was possibly going to lead to chafing later on in the festivities.

Still, this was the first night, and one must make a good impression, so I reached up to battle with my bodice until my breasts were seated right, pulled at the back of my dress to pull the aforementioned thin material out of my backside, and headed in, curious as to what my secret would be, but sure of one thing;

I looked classy.

He was truly enjoying her hands upon him.  He wasn’t sure if he was trying to be impressive or simply wanted to, just have her.  “Maybe I don’t want to keep you, I just want to spend time with you.  If things turn, great and if they don’t then I will have enjoyed my time in the arms of an exceptionally beautiful woman.”  He said as she looked at her, a slight smile played over his lips as he licked them.  “Seems everyone here is a bit more financially well off than me.  I am just a working guy here for a vacation.”  He said realizing he did have enough money to be here since most of everything was taken care of by his employer.
“So you like my arms then?”  He asked resting his hand on the small of her back, just above the crest of her rear as they stood there moving to the music.

 In another lifetime he would have made sure she wouldn’t have felt that being a kept woman wasn’t bad.  But now he wanted only to enjoy the time they had together, no matter how long or brief it would be.  “Scared I might scoop you up and carry you away?”  He smirked at her firmness and the pleasure of her touch.  He realized she really had nothing to worry about as she could truly have any male…or female for that matter in this place.
 “You are a totally beautiful woman and to be honest no one worth their salt would have truly cared how you showed up as long as you did!”  He smirked.  “Look at me.  Do I really look like I know what the hell gothic really meant?”  He looked into her eyes then at her neck.
 
“Then your moves are the most natural, charm that there is.”  He moved to dip her to hold her close.  “Besides there are lots of different ways to get a secret out of someone.  I don’t see you being so forthcoming with sharing yours.”  He pulled her up close to him, he smirked.  “No one could ever make you look silly out on the dance floor, Becky.”

"I'm not scared of that at all," she said honestly, grinning at him, as the thought of him scooping her up in his arms was actually quite appealing.

The constant stream of compliments was making her almost dizzy as they danced, and what was more he seemed to actually sincerely mean them. It was making her feel beautiful, desired, and it was making her feel confident and playful as well. She wiggled her hips a bit more as she relaxed, and even only closed her eyes instead of squealing like she normally would when dipped. She still clung tightly to his arms like she was afraid of being dropped - face it she wasn't exactly the lightest girl in the world - but he managed to hold her up easily and return her to her feet as she breathed a sigh of relief. It was fun, being in those arms, being dipped and held and needing them for support. It was fun, and it was what she was here for, and she was starting to feel alive again.

And so her smile just got brighter as they danced and she smiled as he played coy with his secret, she got the confidence up to actually attempt something like seduction, unaware that someone watching might be getting more and more furious watching her.

She put just one arm about him now, arm fully up as she let her forearm drape across the back of his shoulders hooking around them and forcing her soft curves into him.

"Well how about this." She said, wiggling and shimmying to the music in ways that were just magical. "You tell me your secret." She said with a smile. "And the next night you're not working, you and me can go dance under the stars wherever you like." She said with a smile up at him, shimmying her shoulders to move some of her more interesting parts. As she did she took his hand in hers and ran it down her back, past the edge of her waist and down to the curve of her ass where she gave it a squeeze. "It'll be fuuuuuun." She said, as if she needed to say it out loud.

“You sure?  A woman like you, with a man like me.  Devouring you completely?”  He teased.

He found she was light…at least to him despite her ample curves, he held her close feeling more than a desire for her.  He still found himself looking around for Ren who was at the bar.  She seemed ok for the most part, but she also wanted to be left…’alone.’  He focused on Becky.  He should have known this would have affected her so he would have dipped her sooner.
She was beautiful, lovely and carefree.  She didn’t seem to worry except for the face she seemed to not believe she was as beautiful as he thought she was.  He was enjoying the extra bounce in her wiggle and she seemed to have all a man could ask for…then why did a part of him feel like he was cheating on Ren?

‘He quickly shook that thought away, she didn’t care.  Every time she got the chance she tried to ditch him.’  He thought but focused harder on the beauty in his arms, the one that did apparently like him.

 He found she moved her body closer too him, he was enveloped by her touch and he seemed to be much closer to her now.  Her ample curves now pressed into his chest and he saw the opportunity to truly spend time with someone that wanted to truly spend time with him.

‘She what yo mama gave ya!’  She moved with the undulations of a belly dance with no belly and a whole lot of hips.  “I have one better, I will tell you mine…of sorts and you tell me yours?”  He said not minding her part of the bargain as well but since they were making offers he might as well get his in as well.  When she moved next, it was his hand that moved down her back, she held it to make sure he didn’t miss any part of her.  Once his hand went passed her waist she moved it so he could not only feel but cup her amazing behind and he did squeeze.  “Oh, my!”  He meant to think it but it came out just as easily because yes she was just that…that…that…DAMN!!!

 “Yep, it sure would be.”  He said leaning in to lightly kiss her, letting his tongue stroke her neck as if he were preparing for something else.

Joseph would take one last cursory glance at Becky and her partner before turning his full attention back to his newfound conversation partner. He would order water with lemon, having had a couple of drinks already. After all, he would be useless if he were drunk, and hummus was definitely not something that tasted as good coming back up than it did going down. "We all have to experience it at one point. Hell, I was in that same stool not ten minutes ago." He would let his charm be natural without putting it on too thick.


I mean, if you consider Nashville, Tennessee to be a sewer, you're not all that far off." His lips would curl into a grin, the mask he had chosen telegraphing his emotions...considering that half of his face was pretty much exposed. But, he would continue to analyze the situation, wondering how to approach it. "But, yeah. You can call me the Phantom....but, it would be more helpful if I could get a name from you...after all, it's easier to be a friend when you can properly address someone."

As soon as his mouth opened there was a finger on his lips, gently guiding him back away from her neck until they were face to face again. "An even trade?" She sounded disappointed. "And here I thought you wanted to dance in the starlight." She sighed. "Well, if that's what you prefer we can trade our secrets. Or you can tell me yours and I'll see you your next night off out in the desert." She smiled a smile that promised many things. "I'll even throw in a kiss if you tell me right now." She smiled again, trying to keep a straight face as she willed herself to play the part of the temptress.

Then she shrugged, "or we can just swap secrets I guess. If that's what you prefer." Her tone and body language said what a disappointing decision that would be.

‘Wow, she was good!’  She seemed to know what she wanted and knew how to work herself to get it too.  He blushed.  “I do want to dance in the starlight.”  He found himself caressing her cheek.  “My next night off out in the desert.”  That smile that had him mesmerized it seems.   “What kinda kiss?!?”  He said his tune seemed to change immediately and she could probably tell with all of her other assets, that had piqued his interest for sure.  He stood there with both of his arms wrapped around her now, hands resting fully upon her rear as he was cupping it completely.

“That is not what either of us wants it seems.”  He looked at her moving closer.  “What kind of kiss?”  Not letting her control the moment so easily as he leaned closer.  “Well?”  even beyond his mask, his hunger shown through.

The man who had come to join her had a nice charm.  His voice was perfect as if music to her ears and from what she could see, he wasn't too bad on the eyes.  His mask only hid about half his face so unless the other side was disfigured, she knew he'd look just as nice with his mask off.  She was starting to believe that maybe she could have a good time with him.  So she moved closer leaving her drink behind.  Now, she stood next to him, fully in his personal space.

Her hand began to brush over his legs gently.  "Okay, Phantom."  Her voice sweetly seductive as ever.  "How about an exchange?"  She asked, her voice as sweetly seductive as ever.  "If you tell me your secret, I'll tell you my name."  She hadn't realized what her hand had been doing.  She also felt no need to tell the man who had originally been spending his time with the half-naked woman her name.  Even if he did agree, she was only going to tell him what she told most men she didn't expect to be around long.

Becky was still smiling, eyes still sparking as his arms wrapped around her and held her close. She could sense the power of his body and was starting to get the sense of how stubborn he could be as well. Still, he was flirting back quite heavily too and she very much enjoyed that. She continued to sway her body in his arms, a bit slower now, keeping him hypnotized as she could.

Both of her hands were behind his shoulders now, and thanks to her heels she could reach up behind his head and cup them there, so that when she moved her face closer to his so that they were barely a few inches apart she could whisper to him, "Right here, right now, the sweetest kiss you've ever had." She practically moaned into her whisper, eyes almost fluttering.

"But only if you tell me your secret."

Joseph stood there as the mystery blonde encroached upon his space. Now she was the one turning the charm on. "It seems as though you're getting the better end of that deal." He would reply, taking note of the odd sort of sparking sensation that he felt from her hand moving up his leg. "Besides...I could just make a name up for you. I'm not exactly the best at it..." A sly chuckle escaped his lips.


"I tell you what. We make it a game. I'll give you three possible statements. If you guess correctly, you can waltz right on off without giving me anything. But, if you guess wrong...you have to tell me both your name AND your secret. Do we have a bargain?" His voice was a bit more abrasive, the price of doing business, but he still maintained the depth within its tone.

 His arms were wrapped around the woman with the wonderful hips and the serpentine body that his thoughts were more than focused on. She felt just so damned good in his arms.  He didn't want to let her go, but he new at some point he still had to go check on HER.  His fingers moved to continue to hold and squeeze her expansive rear in his large hands.

He leaned down, his lips a hairsbreadth from hers.  He moved gazing in her eyes once more, the promise of her oral delights. "I am a vampire!"  He said just before his lips met her own.  He couldn't help but to indulge her kissing her hungrily as he was truly hungry for her in so many ways.  He felt his own lips against hers as he drunk her in feeling the delight of her that he didn't want to end.

Becky barely had time to smile and let out a little laugh before she was wrapped up in his lips. Him? The only man here not in black, a vampire? Well that was ironic!

She had to struggle to commit that to memory as soon she was greatly distracted by his kiss, which she eagerly pressed herself into. Her body happily let itself be wrapped up in his strong arms, her ass flexing in his hands as he squeezed, her soft arms wrapped around his head and pulled him down to her so she could press her lips onto his, and open her mouth just enough that he could go a little further if he wanted.

Learning secrets was fun! She decided. She lost herself in the kiss for as long as he cared to keep it going, not caring who saw them, or aware of what effect it might have on anyone.

Some guests flirted with Theo, glazed eyes shining with playful mischief. Others were jittery. They sought reassurance in their joking around with him. In their eyes, he was harmless and not someone who they needed to impress tonight. His presence was outright ignored by a few. They arrived with longtime friends or acquaintances made in their first day at Caravanserai. After receiving their secret, they did not linger with him.

Theodore did not favor one interaction over another. Well, that was a half-truth. There were some individuals who stood out in his memory. Conversation made time fly by faster but he did not begrudge those who did not glance at him more than once. The masquerade was the attraction, not him.

The initial flood of guests slowed down to a barely noticeable trickle, granting him the ability to relax and breathe easier. Theodore sat down and pulled out his android cellphone from where he had concealed it underneath a stack of flyers. He was in the midst of reading the latest United States headlines when he noticed a refined woman headed in his direction. Slipping the phone back into its hiding place, he stood up in order to make his presence more noticeable.

“Dark Lady,” Theo called out to her, unable to resist smiling upon seeing her adjusting her breasts to appear just right in the dress. “Sorry to interrupt but is this your first time going inside the masquerade?”

Ren was starting to forget all about Chris and his all too obvious hunger for the woman in his arms.  She was forgetting about the scantily clad siren that had her hooks in the man the blonde had tried for for too many years.  Sure, she'd have to think about the pair later, probably never forget the way he'd clung onto her like she was the air he needed to breathe.  For now, though, she was happy to keep her attentions on the man who'd shown any interest in even talking to her.

"Is that so?"  She asked, placing her free elbow on the bar and laying her chin on that fist without moving the hand touching the man's thigh.  "And what would you want to call me?"  The idea that someone might choose to make up a name fascinated her.  Sure, she'd heard many of the flirtatious ones.  She'd been called not so savory names before as well.  But no one had ever made up an actual name for her before.  He'd be doing so without even seeing her face.  He'd have to decide on a name for her that she would tease him about later.  Perhaps it would be a joke between the two if they ever ran into each other again.  Either way, she knew she would hold onto it stubbornly.

The next words to escape the man's lips brought an excited glimmer to the blonde's eyes.  He wanted a deal?  Ren had never been good at passing up on a deal where she might lose.  Besides, she wasn't one to lose and all she had to do was guess right.  Guessing was something she was good at.  "I'll take you up on that deal, Mr. Phantom.  With two conditions."

She leaned in closer to the man without removing her fist from her chin as she began her changes to the deal.  "First, if I win, you tell me your real name.  Second, you tell me the secret of that bimbo in blue.  I'm sure you know it."  That's when she looked back at the pair only to see Chris lean in and steal that very woman's lips into his own.

A flurry of emotions passed over the young woman.  Anger, hatred, loathing...She was seeing only red for a moment.  She wanted to march over and knock the lights out of that disgusting, half-naked creature.  A moment later, it hit Ren that Chris was the one who kissed her.  He'd made his decision as to what he wanted.  Maybe she'd stupidly wanted to believe before that he was one day going to figure out how Ren felt.  She'd made it obvious enough on a consistent basis, or so she thought.  Now, she saw that he'd been aware, he'd simply chosen to ignore the desires of his charge.  Be it because she was his job, because she was his best friend's baby sister, or whatever other reason he had, he'd chosen the woman who wanted to show off her body like she was trying to sell it.

The woman who'd only ever loved two men in her entire life was shattered.  She could feel herself falling apart.  She had to get out of here before anyone saw, before Chris saw.  Still, she couldn't just run out of here and so she did the next best thing.  She gave the Phantom a peck on the cheek.  "To be continued?"  She didn't wait for a response before grabbing what was left of her fourth drink and downing it quickly.  Placing the glass back on the counter, she walked passed the man she'd been spending her time with, softly brushing her fingers from one shoulder to his other as if she didn't want him to forget her.

She was sure she wasn't hiding her emotions too well but at this point, she didn't care.  She walked as quickly as she could without dropping her confident stride which right now she was sure came off as determined instead.  She was determined.  Determined to get out of there without Chris seeing her leave.  That wasn't too hard as his focus, his affections were on the half-naked woman who'd stolen any chance Ren ever had of thinking Chris could feel the same way for her as she did for him.

Looking up from my last-minute adjustments, I noticed a dapper looking guy smiling in my direction under his mask, and approached as he rose to his feet and called over to me.

“No interruptions at all,” I assured him; reaching up to pat him familiarly on the shoulder. “In fact, you’re just what I need. Take a look and tell me if there is anything sticking out where it shouldn’t, would you? It’ll be more interesting for you than checking out your phone, and does me the favour of not going in there for the first time looking like a haystack.”

Twirling around slowly, so he could take in my form, and highlight any adjustments that needed doing; I took the opportunity of glancing down at his desk to see if I could find any hint of a list, or notepad that would contain the names of the guests and their associated secrets—after all, why do the leg work, when you could go in there pre-armed?

“Looks like things are getting on famously in there; it’s a shame you are stuck out here missing all the fun, especially with such a nice mask—Greek is it? Are you stuck on the door all night, or do you get a chance to come in and mix with the rest of us poor mortals after a while?”

There’s nothing worse than being the pleb forced to sit at the entrance and watch everyone else have fun, especially when you knew the rest of the staff were able to let their hair down. Who knows, I might be able to get some information out of him, if I played it right, and it always paid to be nice to the staff—you never knew when you might need them.

"Well, let's go by what I know about you so far. Quite obviously blonde...a dress that makes you seem as if you were a walking galaxy of stars all by yourself...I would call you something like Andromeda...or Cassiopeia." Joseph would reply, the first two things that immediately came to mind. In truth, his description of her, while accurate, was underwhelming. But, he chalked that up to being overwhelmed in her orbit.


It seemed that she was game to his deal, with a couple of conditions of her own. Unfortunately, it came with the possibility of having to bluff his way through at least one of them. The way she seemed to glance back and forth between him and the couple of Becky and Chris made it seem that telling her of his deal with Becky wouldn't have been wise. Following her eyes, he saw what she saw. Becky and Chris, lips locked, tucked away in their own gilded cage for all of the world to see without them neither knowing nor caring.


His mystery woman's reaction to the sight was rather telling. There had to be something between her and the man in the gold suit. That probably wasn't the secret given by the hosts of the party, but it definitely was true on its own. With the peck on the cheek, the touch of his shoulder, she had left another message...one that honestly felt very mixed, confusing. Watching her storm off, he didn't know whether to stay or to chase after her.


After sitting in stunned silence for about two-ish minutes, Joseph finally found the words to express his feelings on what just happened. "Son of a bitch." He probably said that a *bit* more out loud than he meant to...

Khalil laughed when she mentioned that his name was Zachariah and he worked at a zoo. Her sense of humor was quick; he liked that. And then… Well… So there was a kiss between them. And a gift, offered by her to him. She tasted sweet, and her tongue added a certain tangy flair to the moment. There was a soft breath when their lips met, then their tongues… And there was an instant when she broke the kiss and he opened his eyes, blinking curiously. Slowly he brought his thumb and index to his mouth, pulling out… a red gummy bear. His eyes flickered up to her, a coy smile upon his tasty lips. ”Red. My favorite.” And he slipped the candy back into his mouth, the smile turning into a grin when he noticed that she was chewing on some candy as well. He was talking about the gummy bear being his favorite color… ...right?

”You and I should leave this photo booth… Else, the thing may start to take pictures of our private collection.” He winked at her with that gorgeous smile, a hand sliding up her knee to her bared thigh… Before gently, smoothly easing her up upon her feet, getting up at the same time. With a hand to her waist, he looked at her for a long moment. ”I’ll make sure to keep a Polaroid with me… Just in case.” Another flash of that smile, and the two escaped the darkness of the photo booth.

The pair had slipped back into the main banquet hall, virtually unnoticed, right at the same time as one of the owners of the Caravanserai resort, a woman named Ruby Dunn, took center stage with a troublesome microphone. After her short but sweet speech, there was… a lot going on. A golden-helmed man in a gold suit was spending some time with the stunning brunette in the little blue dress… And then, there seemed to be a hint of drama unfolding. It was relatively discrete, as most people were costumed and masked and the dim lights made it difficult to definitively mark out anyone in specific.

A long-legged blonde in a dazzling dress, wearing diamonds and a mask to fit, was hurriedly leaving the main hall. There was a long moment of silence as Khalil took the opportunity to take all of this in… Before turning to the fire-haired, black-dressed lady besides him. He leaned closer to her ear, to whisper so that only she would hear him. ”Well then… And here I thought you and I were being mischievous back there… Turns out we’re the most well-mannered ones here.” And he nudged her with his shoulder, just a tiny bit, an easy closeness between them fermenting.

Taking a moment to look at her, then at himself, Khalil chuckled lightly. ”I’ve just now realized that I’m dressed exactly like Gomez Addams. Pinstripe suit and all. Which makes you…” He quietly took her hand and began to walk backwards, towards the edge of the dance floor, bold and brash. ”...Morticia. Black dress, killer heels and all.” Suddenly stopping, he would catch her as she softly bumped into him, keeping her close, lifting her held hand up and locking eyes with her. His lip curled into a smile.

”Shall we dance… ...Cara Mia?" And that smile turned into a wide, toothy grin.

Date | Time: June 6th 2020 | 6:00 PM
Wearing: Fancy Fancy with Mask
Location: Event Hall | Masquerade Ball | Entrance
Tagging: Dark Lady aka Kinsey O’Malley, Lady Twinkle aka Alexandrena Kensington (mentioning)

Theodore was unbothered by Dark Lady’s pat to his shoulder. He was a rather physical person himself, a trait which sometimes irritated people or brought forth misunderstandings. Occasional awkward ones with possessive husbands or girlfriends. Jealousy did not cleave to a single gender. Luckily, in his profession (the real one which did not leave him standing alone outside a party) granted him freedom in that regard. People did not mind him being hands-on. It was better than being called out for their mistake in front of an entire class.

He did not appear the least bit abashed at being caught on his phone by her. What else was he supposed to do while waiting for someone, like her, to walk up to him? Stare at everyone else inside of the party. It wasn’t happening.

“Your confidence is convincing,” Theo informed her as he moved around the desk. Standing behind her, he tucked the strings intended to make hanging the dress easier out of sight.  “There. Now you look like a proper hayroll rather than a haystack.”

Dark Lady would find no secrets upon the table. Not because Theodore was exceptional at protecting sensitive information...but because he forgot to make a note of which guests were given which secret. Another reason why it was unwise to have him at the front desk.

Just then, a young lady rushed out of the event with obvious distress on her face. Theodore opened his mouth to say something, anything, but she was gone in a matter of seconds.

"Wonder what that's about...?" Turning back to Dark Lady, Theo shook his head, already imagining many more dramatic exits throughout the course of the night. There would be so many hangovers tomorrow morning. Luckily for them, the staff was well aware of people’s lack of control and had multiple means to help minimize the unwanted sickness.

“You guessed right again,” he confirmed, reaching up to touch it. “I know mine’s simple compared to the rest but I like it well enough. I’ve always had a fascination with gods and such.” This was was full of questions. At first, he thought it simple curiosity but now...he wasn’t sure. “I’m afraid I’ll be here at Olympus for the rest of the night. It’s kind of you to be concerned?” A slight questioning eased into his voice without his knowledge.

A part of him was partly surprised and yet another part smiled as she definitely gave him truly what she said she would and he indulged her feeling her body in his arms and her lips against his own.  He couldn't help but enjoy the warmth of her touch, while he drank of her lips, feeling the swell of her breasts against him.  He had her in his hands but slowly let her down.  He looked into her eyes, he then looked up only to hear the guy at the bar where Ren had been.  <<"Son of a bitch.">>

He caressed Becky's cheek gently.  "I am so sorry, I would love to continue this...but duty calls...I am truly sorry...I do look forward to our dance."  He said kissing her cheek, before excusing himself.  He was still her bodyguard after all and he didn't neglect his duties much.  He wouldn't start now.  Once he was out of the ballroom he took off after Ren.  Finding her wasn't normally a problem, she would go where she felt safe and knowing her it was right now her room and her luggage....  (to be continued -Main thread).

It was a rather beautiful, hungry kiss, the type that would normally lead, immediately lead that is, to quite a lot more.

But it couldn't. She could go somewhere with this guy anytime and in fact had already promised to later, this party and her game with Joseph were only happening once. How could she possibly un-entangle herself from this when no part of her actually wanted to and -

He was leaving? She was stunned for a moment, obviously not expecting that as he left. "Ah..." was all she got out before he bailed.

She blinked. And again. "Well, that was a freebie." She said breathing a sigh of relief and checking her dress wasn't mussed up from his hands, which it wasn't. She didn't bother wondering why he left or what had caused it, all she cared was she was in the clear to go hunt more secrets.

She eyed the room as she went back to the bar and ordered another amazing drink from JJ. Who would be telling her their secrets next, she pondered?

Smiling as Theo adjusted my dress, though disappointed by the lack of secrets spilled on the desk, I nevertheless patted his other shoulder in thanks when he was finished.

“You’re a gentleman and a scholar, sir; thank you kindly for your attention, though I suspect neither of us is unfamiliar with a roll in the hay. That being said, it would be hard to find one in the desert, and what would a five-star complex like this be needing with one anyway?”

Yes, I had random thoughts that passed through my mouth before engaging mouth, but that was part of my charm…occasionally…sporadically…once in a blue m…well it was what I did anyway!

Trying to get my brain back on track, I felt satisfaction when he indicated my guess about the mask was right on the money, and admitted to his fascination with the gods.

“Ah, well even Gods were able to come down from their lonely mountain once or twice, when at their most whimsical, so let’s hope you are given some time to enjoy yourself. God knows I spent enough boring nights on stakeouts to understand what you are going through. The only question is, what god is it that you nod your head to? Apollo, perhaps?”

My question was interrupted by a flash of diamonds on material of black night, as a woman rushed out of the door looking distressed and, judging by the smell of her breath as she past close by to me, more than one sheet to the wind—lucky gal.

“Looks like someone’s been getting a little too close with Dionysus,” I observed with a raised eyebrow, turning to look into the room, where I saw a guy resplendent in gold twist from the girl in blue he had been talking to, to look in our direction. “The plot thickens, I see. It looks like we have a winner for the reason that girl made a quick fox-trot out of here. Want to bet he’s the next to go?”

Sure enough, I hadn’t even finished that sentence before he was rushing past us, intent on pursuing the fleeing woman.

“Well,” I murmured, once he was out of earshot. “I was going to ask you what I’d missed, but it seems like the action is only just beginning! You might just have the best seat in the house tonight, all things considered. Just don’t touch the punch; it looks like there’s something in it.”

Drama, drink, Greek Gods, secrets to be discovered and drink—my kind of shindig.

Better make a note to check what day it is, because it felt like all my Christmases came at once.

Theodore’s professional demeanor cracked, for the briefest moment, when Dark Lady described him in an unexpected manner. Scholar. It was not often someone saw beyond his handsome face and charismatic smile. The fault did not fall in anyone’s lap but his. He never did anything to banish the illusion of caring only about sports and physical fitness.

His attempt at humor did not work as intended. It served only to confuse the woman rather than make her laugh.

“Never mind that,” Theo said without bothering to explain the haystack verses hay roll comment. The moment was lost; the joke was not his best.

“I’ve heard of people thinking the gods were bored with the perfection of their lives and each other,” he mentioned, thick eyebrows furrowing together underneath his mask. “I never considered the possibility that they might be lonely.”

Thinking further about it, Theo was not certain about her explanation. Maybe it would ring truer if the Greeks only had one god like the Christian faith. However, Zeus did not sit atop his mountain by his lonesome. He had a wife; family, including brothers and children. There were plenty of other godlike folks for him to interact with on a daily basis. He left his throne because perfection and the routine of his life became mundane.

Theo could relate to that type of behavior. He’d done the same; now, he was divorced rather than married.

“Well,” he said with a sigh and returned to stand behind the desk. “Put in a good word with Miss Ruby for me. You’ll know her when you see her. She’s channeling her inner Diana Ross tonight. I expect I’ll be carrying her back to her suite n an hour or so. You do that and maybe she’ll let me loose from this mountain.”

So she’s a cop, he thought at the mention of stakeouts. It was impressive. Now, he was thinking about her in uniform rather than a black dress.

“I’m not the monogamous type,” he confessed with a shrug of his shoulders. “I’m a free worshiper.”

He grinned when Dark Lady mentioned Dionysus being the cause of the woman’s distress. “Mortals are always quick to blame the gods,” Theo teased as he reached for the top hat. “That’s fairly common in this business though. Just be glad she didn’t throw up on your shoes and still had the good sense not to become violent with somebody. Those are not fun days for anybody involved.”

Dark Lady had a good eye. Theodore had not even put together that the man in the gold suit was the other girl. That’s when he remembered the couple from earlier when he was working the receptionist desk.

“Yep,” he said with another shake of his head. “Wouldn't want to be in his shoes. I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up sleeping in the lobby tonight." Remembering she was still in need of a secret, he held out the top hat which contained the remaining secrets. "Let's see if Fortuna smiles on you, officer."

Location: Event Hall/Masquerade Ball, Photo Booth to dance floor
Tagging: Khalil, open

Did Khalil respond to her name and her secret clue? It was hard to focus with his fingers sneaking up from her knee to her thigh. She could have stayed sitting on his lap eating gummi bears for the rest of the party in that moment but he was right. "Mmm.... yes, we can't hog all the fun in here." Apparently they had definately not kept the drama, it seemed. Breezy blushed at his offer to take pictures of them later but as they exited she made sure to grab the strip of pictures that came out of the machine. She blushed at just how intimate they looked. "I'll start a scrapbook for us... just our eyes only." She tucked the pictures into her clutch purse.

And then he was walking towards the dance floor with a devlish grin. Who wouldn't follow that man anywhere? Breezy was happily pulled in close to his body, her eyes looking him up and down. As if she needed another reason to look him over. "Mmm...  we do look a little devlish. Lead on Mon Cherie." Perhaps they would help add to the drama in the room at least - or at least help to encourage others to the dance floor.

Once they had twirled and swayed and he had dipped her at least once, she came close and whispered in his ear. "My name doesn't have an "M" in it. And I know something others do not about the world around them. You now owe me two clues Querido."

Theo seemed to muse on my throwaway line about lonely gods on mountains, offering an alternate view that they were simply bored of their own perfection, which made me laugh in amusement. Granted, I’d never intended to follow up on the line, but it was too good an opportunity to pass up.

“I’ve been a PI for a few years now Hun, and detective before that, and in all my interactions with dysfunctional families, infidelity and violent domestics, I’d never seen a single one be down to their own perceived perfections. Boredom is part of it, of course, but when it comes down to it, feeling alone without any connection is a crowd of people is the truest hell known to man or god,” I couldn’t help but nod towards the fun and frolics being had in the hall as I made that point.

“Looking at it in one way, the Pantheon of the Gods were the most dysfunctional family in history. There were those who couldn’t have what they wanted, despite their god-like powers, and so started wars about it; those who ached so much for some kind of connection different to what they were used to that they’d fuck anything going, in whatever form they could imagine—Zeus, I’m looking at you buddy—and those who couldn’t see what was in front of their faces until it’s shoved so hard in front of it, they can’t stop arguing afterwards.” This with a nod towards where the fleeing twosome had gone.

“As you said, we mere mortals tend to blame the gods, but where did the Gods go to apportion blame? Now that’s the real bummer!”

Had a lifetime of seeing petty arguments turned into infidelity and murder made me cynical? You betya; why the fuck did you think I drunk so much? Still, this was a party, and I couldn’t continue to bring a downer on it—not with others working so hard to do so. There was fun to be had.

“Worship all you like, Hun,”
I grinned, patting him on the shoulder. “Whoever and wherever it may be; it’s the best way, and gets rid of all the pretence,” again I glanced at the direction those two had fled into. And if it doesn’t work out? Well, at least you won’t end up as the biggest gold draft excluder in history.”

Chuckling at my own joke, I dipped my hand into the hat and pulled out a piece of paper from it. Opening it up, I let out a little laugh at what was there, and slid it under my bodice for safekeeping.

“Looks like I’ve gone from Greek to Roman all of a sudden!”

Name:  Harry the Waiter
Date | Time: 6 June 2020, mid-afternoon
Wearing:  Uniform
Location: Bar
Tagging: Laila, Joseph

Today had been an exhausting, non-stop work day.

Harry was more than looking forward to collapsing into an unrecognizable heap once the party wrapped up for the night. Thinking of a well-earned rest, he glanced in the direction of the clock.

A few more hours, he thought with a sigh, just barely suppressing the urge to yawn.

The party was in full swing now. People were showing off their best moves on the dance floor. It gave him a bit of a laugh to see Miss Ruby coerced some masked gentleman into dancing with her. That lady really was a hoot. He liked her though; she never failed to brighten up staff meetings with her humor.   

As he helped mind the bar, Harry occupied what little downtime he had with people watching. It was a hobby of his; something he felt more comfortable with than actually initiating a conversation. The party did not disappoint. People watching was like...being a theater. Only, depending on your perspective, the main character, the star of the show, might alternate. He crafted stories about those he watched, filling in the gaps of his lack of information about them.

Harry found himself yanked from his thoughts when a man, obviously frustrated, released a rather loud expletive. The cause of his frustration was obvious; a woman. Had she laughed in his face when he sought her attention or something? He couldn’t be sure as he hadn’t managed to catch the woman’s expression as she bolted from the party.
Knowing Brandon and JJ would not let such a moment go unnoticed, Harry swallowed his discomfort and brought the man a glass of water.

“H-happens to the best of us, Sir.” It was the best comfort he could offer him on the fly. “Don’t let it ruin your night.”

Just then, a nearby woman grabbed his attention with a request for wine. He didn’t need to go far since she was nearby the jilted man. Grabbing a bottle, he poured her a glass.

Laila sat at the bar watching people with a detatched interest -they seemed to enjiy themselves- which was good.  And she did enjoy seeing the creativity that had gone into many of the costumes.  Paying for her drink, she offers the waiter a fleeting smile of gratitude.  She spent time wondering who these people were and what brought them here.  She did not stare though, and she was savvy enough to look away if she was caught letting her gaze linger for long.

Thinking about the secrets they had all been alotted as part of some game, she wondered what secrets people really came burdened with.  Then again, maybe they came here to let go of said things -the desert was a place to forget- and perhaps even forgive.

Tagging: Dark Lady/Lady Detective aka Kinsey O’Malley

Clarification came in the form of a response. She was a private investigator, not a cop. Her earlier questions made more sense now. Theodore wondered if she even did so with purpose or if doing so had become second nature. Like she had issue with separating herself from work, even on vacation.

He did not envy her job. It sounded like she dealt with a smorgasbord of crap on a daily basis.

“Sounds like you’re in the wrong profession,” Theo commented as she plucked a tiny sheet of paper from the top hat. “With insights like that, you might serve better as a counselor or therapist rather than a detective.”

Dark Lady earned a brief laugh from him at the mention of the gods being deprived of someone to blame for their troubles.

“You might be wrong there,” Theo said as he withdrew the hat away from her. “They often blame each other which is why they’re always biting at each other’s heads or taking offense to what others might get a laugh out of.” 

He was curious about the woman’s secret but not enough to question her about it. He’d leave that to the ladies and gents within the masquerade.

“Well good luck to you, Lady Detective,” he said with a smirk. “If anyone can win this secrets games, it’s you.”

Smiling at Theo as he wished me good luck in the nights festivities, I gave an extravagant little bow, complete with cheeky smile, and swept off into the main room, ready to enter into the nights frivolities.

Stepping through the doorway, I took in the décor, noting how hard the staff had worked to take, what was essentially a bland, one-size-fits-all, hotel function room and turn it into a modern-day gothic masterpiece (or at least, the version that would possibly exist at a wannabe Tim Burton wedding reception). Still, the furnishings spoke of its upmarket five-star reputation, with no expense spared on items that probably cost five times more than they needed to, to cater to people who probably wouldn’t have known the difference anyway.

Unfortunately, the atmosphere seemed to be almost as dead as the famous vampire the party was no doubt in honour of, now that the drama of the fleeing Romeo and Juliette had been resolved, and my roving eye was disappointed at what I saw, as I scanned the crowd.

* Mafiosa in a gold mask on the dance floor with an elegant auburn-haired cutie in a little black dress, attempting the impossible of trying to dance romantically as the band played the 80’s classic “Like a Virgin”. (Though virgin on the ridiculous if you asked me) Check.

* Exotic looking lady in blue having her fortune taken by the lady from reception in a gypsy tent in the corner. (You will meet a big handsome stranger who will give you a secret…oh wait, been there, done that already) Check.

* Blonde in a deliciously gothic red dress slipping into the room, ready to have some fun. (She could be one to keep an eye on) Check.

* Two women and a man, sitting at a bar, waiting for a drink whilst gazing into space whilst not talking. (There’s a joke in there somewhere) Check.


Looks like what this party needs is a little Kinseying up!

Heading over to the band, writing a song request on a piece of paper as I went, I handed it over to the singer as he (all too convincingly) proclaimed he had been touched for the very first time, before turning and walking confidently to the bar. Three unoccupied people would be a good way of getting things rolling, especially when one of them—the woman in blue—had already been responsible for some actual drama tonight.

Reaching a gap in the bar between them, I slapped it in a random, yet pleasant beat, and called out to the barman to get his attention before the rest.

“Vodka on the rocks, with a champagne chaser to go with it, Hun, and whatever cocktail is good around here too!” Glancing from side to side at my new companions, I flashed a bright smile, and spoke good naturedly. “From the looks of things, these could use the same, so just line them up and keep going!”

Winking at the guy, I turned my attention to the woman in blue; thumbing in the direction of the doorway.

“You have just missed one hell of a scene, I’m telling you. One moment I’m waiting there for my secret, the next this woman almost knocks me onto my arse on her way towards the guest rooms. If that wasn’t bad enough, the golden statue from the Oscars—who has clearly escaped someone’s mantlepiece for one evening—goes rushing after her with an expression on his face that looked like he had been chewing on lemons. Some party, eh?”

Leaving that hanging in the air, noting the band striking up my song request, I clapped my hands together.

“Right then, which of you are going to let me into your secret first?”

I hear snippets of conversation, mention of detective, god, goddesses, speaking in a cultured, educated way.  She heads to a bartender.  I watch, turning my head in the direction of the mysterious woman, trying to hear more conversation, get her attention.  How do I politely make it known I have detective experience and . . . well lots of stuff?  I decide for a wave, then hoping I’ve caught her eye, I point to myself and signal me too.

And I’d sort of like to try the fortune thing too.  I still pay attention to the dark detective but edge closer to the fortune teller, thinking there may be a queue effect.  Maybe I’m next.  The mask keeps things hidden which is good, but has the drawback of not being able to convey as much with it.  I wonder if Katie even recognizes me.

Becky glanced up from the bar where she had just ordered another of her confidence boosting miracle potions.

She smiled at the eccentric appearance of Kinsey. She could tell at a glance she was one of those girls who had quite a lot going on upstairs, usually they had a hard time relaxing their minds enough to get pretty for a party. Not that she wasn't pretty but the outfit was so busy it almost screamed to Becky that it was the outfit of someone who'd gotten distracted a half dozen times getting dressed.

She smiled at the girl as she rambled. "Oh I didn't miss it darling, I had that statue right where I wanted him until he uh, well I'm not sure what exactly." She laughed. "But I know his secret." She said smugly, with a little smile and self-congratulating beam.

"First to tell you a secret? Try JJ." She laughed and nodded towards the bartender. "No don't it might be about me." She said quickly, "But if you want, I'll trade you your secret for Mr. Golden Statue's." She grinned as she made the offer, trying make it seem as tempting as possible.

She smiled towards Joseph who was next to her at the bar. "I'll make you the same offer Mister." She smiled at him.

"Although if any of you want me to give you what I gave him to learn his secret I'll do that too." She laughed. She was having a good time, was very relaxed, and quite enjoying herself at this party.

"The point of secrets are to keep them." Laila says to the elegantly dressed woman in a somewhat amused tone.  "So tell me this, why would I share mine with you?  I mean surely you offer me incentive?" sipping her glass of wine Laila finds her mind wandering again as per usual.  A game of secrets is fun for a small while, a game of sordid truths however..  She'd play along for now though, what harm could it do.  Besides this gave her access to watch whatever shenanigans the others got up to.

Things had become busy very quickly, and Jesse was making the drinks as quickly as possible. His eyes did stray every now and then to find his friend in blue, to see her now rocking that confidence.

There had been a slight lull in orders as Becky came back to the bar, and he let his fellow bartender handle the others that came asking for one as he made his way across from Becky to make her the fancy cocktail that he had been serving her. One that looked ever so elegant in her hand.

She was talking to another lady and he wasn't trying to be rude, but a soft low chuckle escaped his lips as he set Becky's drink down in front of her. "Clever girl." He would never thought about handing out other peoples secrets in exchange for theirs! Very smart!

When Becky mentioned getting secrets from him, he rested against the bar on his elbows and looked back and forth to both of them.

"Yes, I'm just full of secrets." He winked. None of them would be relevant of course, and he would never tell something serious that had been confided in him, but it was obvious he was being playful. He could think of a secret on the fly, surely.

The drink that the girl with the black hair piece had ordered was also set in front of her, and truthfully he probably could be preparing other things, but he deserved a bit of a break for socialization. He had been working his ass off.

His secret...

Was that his feet were killing him.

The prompting had the desired effect, and suddenly everyone was talking at once!

Our fantabulous woman in blue, who had openly admitted to striking gold, both in the secrets and gentlemanly sense, was the first to speak; wickedly offering me the secret of ‘Oscar’ in exchange for my own humble piece of ‘say no more’, but, having been used to dealing with criminals wanting to make deals, I was more than up to the task of countering such measures.

“To be honest, I think I know it already,” I shot back, without missing a beat. “Clearly a guy who dressed like that would be prone to blinging everything—including his condoms—which, given how close you admitted to getting, means you only just managed to avoid ending the night with the most awkwardly delivered vajazzle in human history! Now that would have been some secret to keep, don’t you think?”

Was that too far? Who knows. The bartender, JJ, delivered my thinking just in the nick of time, and I took a long dram of it, just to make sure and, yes, what I said was fine…maybe.

"Just the way I like it, JJ. You're surely my favourite person at this minute in time!"

The redhead down the bar spoke up, pointing out in a husky voice that secrets were meant to be kept, and asking for an incentive to keep them—clearly the two girls were thinking along the same lines, but coming at it from different angles.

“Now where’s the fun in giving the game away?” I grinned, raising my glass to them extravagantly. “After all, the thrill is in the chase, is it not—that is, if I didn’t know all your secrets already—but, don’t worry, I will endeavour to keep the mystery until the end of the evening…or until I’ve had too much to care whichever comes first!”

Pausing, I noticed a movement out of the corner of my eye, and turned curiously to find the woman in red briefly wave to me, before heading off to the fortune tellers’ tent. Maybe she wanted a drink ordering in her near future, who knows?

Turning back to where I was (in my own mind) holding court, I put the vodka down, and lifted up the champagne.

“Well, here’s to a good night, and sparing a thought for the poor woman out in the guest quarters who is either going to end up with jewels where she least expects them, or the biggest novelty golden draft excluder in the place.”

"You could of course try to find out the secrets, have I missed something?" Laila asks in her soft voice that is easily missed.  "Is there some manner of pprize for getting most secrets?" that would add some incentive to try to gauge the presumably made-up secrets.  Fidgeting a bit with her mask she finds it slightly uncomfortable to wear.

Laila raises her glass of wine when the womans toasts to a good night, no sense in being a stick in the mud.  "Let's hope for a good evening indeed, not so sure I will learn many secrets, but perhaps a dance with someone."

Becky took her drink from JJ, giving the man a smile, learning from past mistakes she didn't try to wink just grinned at him with an appreciative, "Thank you, you are a lifesaver." She would have leaned across the bar and kissed him if it wasn't so big. Or she was taller. Or it wasn't so much work in general. "These drinks are just..." she couldn't find the words. She took a sip, every drink firming her resolve to get to know this bartender better on a slow night when she could have him all to herself.

Speaking of which the crowd around the bar was growing, a pretty redhead was trading words with the fast-talking blonde and Becky found herself smiling in amusement at the exchange.

"She's right." She said to the blonde. "If you want secrets you have to be willing to make deals. I'm offering a kiss and a date to anyone who gives me theirs." She said, eyes twinkling. "And I promise, both will be fantastic." She said putting all the double meaning she could into the word. She obviously wasn't any sort of professional seductress, but she was nice and nice looking and it worked well enough, she hoped. "Or alternatively I'll trade you someone else's secret for yours. Best offers you'll get anywhere, any takers?" She said to the gathered crowd.

"And no, Chris's wasn't that he bedazzled his condoms." She said, trying to be stern but giggling instead. "Although I wouldn't be surprised." She said quietly under her breath, looking to the sky innocently as she sipped her drink.

Laila watches the blue-clad bebauty with interest as she talks -she was everything Laila was not- and instead of a pang of jealousy, Laila found herself admiring the womans beauty and tenacity.   A small voice in her head began taunting her, and suddenly Laila opened her mouth to speak.  "Well, a kiss for a secret sounds a most agreeable deal.  Why don't you come over and I am sure we can have an exchange."

Laila hoped her mask hid some of the pink that appeared in her cheeks.  Her heart beating a mile a minute, she places her glass of wine to the bar, afraid she'd crush.  Sweet Jesus, what had she just said outloud?  She almost does not dare to look at the woman to see her reaction, but at the same time she did  not dare look away.  She'll laugh, so laugh along...

Laila kept her blue gaze locked at Becky, not wanting to look at anything else for now -quietly thinking of an exit strategy- if that was needed, and she was rather certain it would be.

It seemed like Bluey (as I’ll call her until I remember her name, or come up with a better nickname), emboldened by her early successes, was determined to win the prize for most secrets, whilst (Reddy—got to be a better name…try harder…more drink needed first) wasn’t even aware of the fact there was a competition going on. Better level up the playing field.

“There surely is a prize; though what prize could be better than being with such illustrious company as ourselves, wearing masks and drinking…” I glanced at the barman with a wide grin. “Ever increasingly strong cocktails, whilst listening to the dulcet tones of our resident band.”

Okay, so Kajagoogoo’s Too Shy wasn’t exactly ‘dulcet’, but they were trying, bless them…or at least very trying on the ears!

My patter was interrupted suddenly by two very bold statements, as Bluey first offered kisses and dates for secrets, and Reddy more than willingly leapt at the chance of engaging in this unusual exchange (turning her more pink, than red, admittedly). Grinning at the interplay, I sipped my drink and leant in to whisper to Bluey.

“I think you have your second taker of the evening!" I advised, conspiratorially, in case she hadn't noticed. "At this rate, you’ll have so many secrets, kisses and dates, you won’t know whether you are coming or going.”

Unable to let the opportunity for additional play go, I signalled the barman and pointed at the two girls.

“I’ll have what they are having…about to have—it looks popular.”


Glancing at them both, I grinned to myself. With any luck, that’s not all I’d get before the night was up.

Becky smiled a rather big, friendly smile as she got the answer she probably least expected - the redhead being the one to take her up on it! But then again, Becky reminded herself, learning to understand the world as a bigger place than just her prejudices was part of why she was here after all, so far away from home. That, plus - yay I get to kiss a girl! Becky willed herself to be cool and smooth and not let on that she'd never kissed a girl like this before. Fake it 'til you make it. Sure, she was here for new experiences but the whole world didn't need to know it was new to her.

She set her drink down on the bar and walked closer to the redhead, a hand extending and running over that nice hair as she smiled at her and spoke soothingly. "I'm glad you think so. I'm Becky." She said with a soft smile, focused on Laila in a way that would make the girl think she was the only person in the room.

Her other hand slowly reached out until it was on Laila's waist, holding her steady as her right hand came down to rest on the girl's shoulder, then slid down to her waist to hold her there was well. It was gentle hold, soft, comforting, very easy to break. Becky was giving her a thousand chances to say no just in case, although the smile on her face and the sparkle in her eye made it clear she was hoping that no never came.

"Do you want it right here or do you want to give someplace a bit quieter?" Becky asked Laila, gazing into her eyes with a gentle, loving look as she spoke her soft, soothing words and moved her hands up and down her sides every so slightly, every so gently. She leaned in close enough that their bodies were almost touching and whispered in the redhead's ear, "I can't wait to learn your secret." In a seductive, breathless whisper.

You see this" the woman pointed to the right side card."This is the lovers card, to have it show up as your present card. Not one but twice! This" she pointed to the left and upside down card "Indicates you have known and lost love and the other side indicates that while you will always cherish the first, there is or soon will be a more forfilling love in your life"

Finally Lalita flipped over the bottom hand card which represented the future. "The world, the opportunity to travel awaits. You should take all options that come your way, and now to find out the answer to your question!" her hand hovered above the the center card.

Laila blushed some at the somewhat unexpected reaction -and as becky comes close enough that they could whisper to each other- Laila opted to do just that.  Her soft lips brushing Beckys earlobe -on purpose perhaps?- and she's hear some husky words.  "Not here and now, my dearest." she murmurs.  She does not reach out or even touch the other woman, instead letting her be slightly in charge.

"I am not one for public displays of affection, I hope that's fine?" she leans back enough that she can meet the other womans gaze, and unlike some, she signifies Becky by actually looking at her face while talking with her, even if it is tempting to let her eyes roam.

"That's okay." She said gently, "I understand, it's a nice party but it's crowded huh?" She glanced about at the others with a smile and whispered to Laila again. "You wanna go now or take a rain check?" She held out her hand, palm up for Laila to place her own into if she wished to step away, but she didn't want to pressure the girl either. She was new to this too, and knew how awkward it must be, but she also really wanted to kiss this girl.

The man could dance.

It’s not just that he had agility and was smooth in his movements. There had been actual practice there. Perhaps he had taken lessons in classical dances. But whatever the reason was, the man moved with grace and assurance. And he never moved alone. There was no reason for him to do so. He kept eye contact with Brielle, even though neither one knew one another’s name. At least… Not yet. Strangely they had learned so much of the other now… For example, she now knew that his favorite gummy bears were red.

And that they were both pretty good kissers.

AND photogenic.

When the second (or was it third) dance ended, the striped-masked man brought Lady Midnight closer to him, hands to her waist, moving a little slower and a little closer to her. Eye to eye, mask to mask. He smiled at her, warmly. ”Oh yes… That game.” It seemed to return to his memory. Clearly, the man had thought of other things. ”Well, since you have been so generous, allow me to return the favor.” He leaned a little bit closer to her. ”My name is Khalil, and we have glanced at one another before. You were parading down the main hall in a bikini this morning, just as I was checking in.” He leaned back to his full height, smiling. ”And as for the secret… You’ll figure it out soon enough, I’m sure of it.”

”But now, for the most important question of them all, Tish…” He grinned when he called her by that silly pet name, as if he was enjoying it immensely. ”...Is what would you like to do, right now? We can continue to dance… We can roam the halls in search of adventure… We can climb to the rooftop to gaze at the night sky? Imagine it, Cara Mia… He pressed his cheek to her, their held hands moving up as if he was deciphering the secrets of the skies. ”Untold numbers of stars in the heavens, like glittering diamonds upon black velvet.”

The pinstripe-suited man returned once more to his standing position before her, holding her softly, looking at her with the same ease and gentleness.

Already proceedings were progressing with a bit more vigour than when I had entered Anne Rice’s worst nightmare, with a potential lesbian kiss offered and hanging, the Mafiosa and auburn-haired cutie making out like Gomez and Morticia on the dance floor, and cocktails by the dozen within easy reach.

And yet still…we weren’t quite there yet.

The letting go of secrets required the participants to be off guard, relaxed (and preferably pumped full of alcohol), and though things were steadily going in that direction, we still had a long way to go. Admittedly, my real intent was to discover the true secrets and needs of the people I was sharing this hotel with, as opposed to the amusing ones found within the game of the masquerade, but before that could have a chance of happening, we needed a little more mischief added to the mix.

Noting the rather despondent gentlemen watching the girls sullenly at the bar next to me, I raised my glass in salute to him, and spoke up.

“Now there’s a man who doesn’t look like he is enjoying his evening so far,”
I observed lightly. “Surely its too early in the night to have such a dark cloud hanging over your head; especially when we have these two beauties here bartering over kisses and secrets. A penny for your thoughts; I promise I’ll give change.”

Joseph had been sitting in silence for several moments. In that time, plenty of people had made their way around and out again. Of course, he had an extra secret beyond the masquerade, but it was one that had been inferred by the event, of which, he had been the witness. At this point, he was more studying the room than anything else. Adrift in a sea of faces, as had been his default condition in every social setting of more than three people in a room.


Becky had offered out more bribes, and had made yet another bargain. Though it seemed that the woman she had made her deal with was her equal and her opposite. Both of them drowning in a world of new experiences. But, where one was trying to simply tread water, the other had decided to swim. Of course, that was yet another in a series of him inferring things, and whether or not he was right remained to be seen.


Nursing Old Fashioned No. 4, Edwards was craving the smokiness of a cigarette, and was just about to get up and walk out for one when he was suddenly addressed directly for the first time in several minutes. "Well. I have to admit, things have not gone so well for me thus far...." Joseph spoke to the newcomer, his voice in a flat monotone of boredom. "And honestly, I ain't too sure I want to sit in this room anymore." The walls had begun to close in on him slowly, inch by inch.

Musing on the guy’s sombre expression, and dour tone, I mused on the possibility he was the victim of Cinderella leaving the bar so quickly. After all, Becky had admitted to having been tangling with ‘Oscar’, and the liquor I’d smelt on the woman as she’d run past me was suggestive of having been at the bar.

Scanning the proximity, I couldn’t see any other male in the room who was either currently unencumbered or carrying such a heavy cloud as he, so the odds were I was correct. Nothing like raw nerves to make a person open up to you…if you could find common ground, that is.

Glancing down at the drink he was nursing, as he admitted to not having enjoyed his night so far, I thought I noticed something about the fingertips to his off hand. Wondering if that was an ‘in’ I could use, I nodded in sympathy to his willingness to leave.

“With a band playing this bad, I don’t blame you for wanting to leave,” I agreed, making a mock face as I glanced back at them. “That guitarist is murdering that solo, isn’t he? There’s a guy who should have stayed playing air-guitar, and leaving the actual entertaining to someone who knows what they are doing.”

"I imagine that between the luxury of the architecture, the free flowing booze, the high end Turkish cigarettes...the owners of this joint had to cut costs somewhere, I guess." If this was her attempt at trying to pry into him, she would have to do better. Sure, the band was basically low-rent...sure, if they were part of the bar crawl they'd be met with apathy at best...but at least they were trying.


The itch for a cigarette continued to gnaw at him, the walls continued their inward march. On top of that, his drink was watering down and the woman trying to converse with him seemed like a nosy body. "I'm not that interesting, ma'am. You seem to be after things, and I'm not quite sure you're interested in the games that this party has set up." His tone of voice continued to convey his absolute boredom. After all, the woman he had started playing the game with was playing in a way that guaranteed she would win, using methods that he couldn't use himself. The second person he had started playing with ran off, and he wasn't even an afterthought in that scenario...what could this one bring to the table?

An almost shut down within a couple of minutes—almost a new record for me, but if a person didn’t preserver they’d never need antiperspirant…or something.

Best thing of a better analogy for later, in case I can use it.

Still, if the guy had been knocked back before, is it any wonder that he’d be a little defensive when somebody new came along? Sure, it wasn’t gentlemanly, but a lady always does her best to keep a conversation going.

Of course, with the absence of a lady present, I guess I would have to do.

“I’ve found that people are more interesting than they give themselves credit for,” I told him with a smile. “And though I’m down for playing the secrets game—if our young friend in the blue over there gives us half a chance, and doesn’t end up wrapping her thighs around some poor sod who tries to hold out on her—I’m just as interested in getting to know my fellow guests, and generally having a good time.”

Did that sound bitchy? Well, yeah, in a friendly kind of way. After all, we were all friends here, and friends can be lightly critical, in a humorous type of way. Its all part of the craic.

“I freely admit, this place isn’t the kind I usually find myself in, so I’m feeling out of place. I even ended up getting lost around the grounds for most of the day—which is embarrassing, and I’m only admitting because I’m wearing this brilliant mask—so just hoping to find my feet and make friends. How about you?”

"I think she's more than won the masquerade game. Who wouldn't just spill out every secret they could pull out when you've got a woman who looks like that throwing themselves at you? She nearly got me. How I didn't give up my secret, I still haven't quite figured out yet." Of course, he wasn't exactly going to admit that he had made a deal with Becky regarding such things. After all, that would just be another thing to exploit.


"All I know is...I gotta get out of here. It's suffocating in here, and I need a cigarette. You're free to do as you like." Joseph stood up, taking a moment to stabilize his wobbly legs. Ordering a glass of water, he began to look for a door, wanting to avoid going back through the way he came, not in the mood to fight through the bodies on the dance floor to make his escape.

It didn’t need a detective to note the resentment evident in the guys voice as he passed comment on Becky; it was palpable. Even so, his quick exit so soon after me making his acquaintance was a little surprising, though I knew I could be overbearing sometimes.

“Well, I guess that explains why the last girl tanked a load of booze, than ran out crying,” I murmured in wry bemusement, as I watched him walking away. "Still, the night is still young.”

Knocking back the champagne, I lifted the cocktail off the bar and lifted it up to the light, so I could examine it, then spoke in my best Humphrey Bogart.

“Looks like it’s just you and me, sweetheart.”

Joseph had walked through and found a door leading out onto a balcony. The area was devoid of anything along the lines of furniture or decoration. Perhaps he wasn't actually supposed to be here. If that was the case, they should have cordoned it off, and Joseph wasn't in the mood to argue. The temperature outside was somewhat comfortable now that the sun was starting to set.

Reaching into his jacket pocket, he would pull out a pack of cigarettes. The paper box had already begun to crumple some from being in his pocket. Pulling out one of the sticks, he would light it, and put the spent match in his pocket. After all, no need to leave things to be discarded behind. Maybe he'd go back in. Maybe he would just go back to his suite. Exhaling smoke, he would lean against the wall and look out into the desert.

A flick of the wrist accompanied by the ching of bangles and the final card was revealed. Deep within the hood of her cloak Lalita blushed. The Devil! "My, your question was cheeky!" the fortune teller was no mind reader but a card like the devil only really meant a few things. Glancing at her client she took a guess at what the woman wanted to know. "If you play your cards right you could get lucky....in more ways then one!".

The reading complete Lalita gathered her cards and stacked them neatly. Bidding her client farewell, the woman decided it was about time she saw a bit of the party herself. As of yet no one had even tried to get her secret from her. Lalita floated from the tent things were now in full swing and she wondered how the other staff were doing.

I hope it’s my turn.  I walk, actually bump into the darker woman in the dark gown, “Sorry.  Have you seen the fortune teller?  I’m hoping for a reading, of sorts I mean.  I might play I’ve got a secret.  I think she does too.”   

The gown is very masquerade-ish but it takes concentration to move through a crowd.  Katie appears to be drifting off. 

I finally reach my destination walking around obstacles of gowned women.  I smile,   “Did I hear someone say your name was Lalita?  I’m Steffy.” I take a breath, “Are you clairvoyant?  Fortunes?  It just seems all so intriguing.”

"Greetings! I am Lalita. It's a pleasure, but of course I knew we were destined to meet this night!" Lalita declared. "Clairvoyant, no that is beyond my simple skills. I read the palm and the cards.

My wish is granted, from hope to yes, it’s my turn.  I look over my shoulder and do see the dark haired woman who I bumped into (Kinsey--and she need not be a clairvoyant to know I am very happy at my good fortune).

So I'm now at my destination and we’re talking.  Lalita and Steffy.  Very cool!

I look at her conspiratorially, “I so want to hear my fortune, but if you uncover my secret, don’t say anything.  It’s the secret code right?”

I’m almost shaking.  “So not clairvoyant.  Fortunes.  And fortunetelling passed on to the daughter.”  This is so delightful!  “Well, I predict your daughter will be beautiful, taking after her grandmother and mother no doubt.”   

My hands flutter a bit.  I don’t know fortunetelling etiquette.  I just let my hands flutter and wait to see what’s next.

The sun was finally setting through the windows of the grand hall, allowing the tincture of the night to make its slow progression over the fiery sands, to lay its starry blanket over us and allow the candles to truly take on a personality of their own.

With the sun ablaze, the grand hall had looked like a cheap Addam’s Family set, but now the curtain was being pulled down on the day, it really was taking on a more grandiose air—which is what one would expect of gothic décor that was designed to truly come into its own when the vampires came out to play.

Sadly, the same could not be said of the band, who it seemed had descended firmly into irony with their playlist—either that, or they had become so disillusioned with the lack of atmosphere earlier on in the night, that they decided to take the piss as much as they could.

This would explain why we had been inflicted with such classics as:

The Monster Mash
Ghostbusters
Thriller


And inextricably:
I Ran


It had been up to me to get them back on track, before the room decided to join me in drowning themselves in the watered-down cocktails, just so they wouldn’t be tortured by the noise anymore.

Which is why the next song they played was an old favourite I’d told them to play, under threat of having the bass guitar shoved where camels feared to go.

Time Warp


Having successfully raised the bar, whilst simultaneously attempted to embody Riff-Raff whilst trying to stop my boobs from popping out of this low-cut dress, I retired to the bar for refreshments, where I spotted the familiar flash of blue dress of the femme-fatal who had been doing her damndest to win the secret game (and chase as many people out of the place as she could).

Becky was having the time of her life! Who knew kissing strangers for no real good reason could be so much fun? She had several dates and several kisses tucked away as she returned to the bar, feeling pleased with herself for how she seemed to have made a lot of progress in getting out of her shell and putting aside her old inhibitions.

"Heyyyy!" She waved to JJ, waggling her empty glass and setting it down on the bar. He seemed busy but she was happy to wait, nobody made these drinks like he did. Heck so far as far as she could tell nobody else made them at all.

She was obviously tipsy as she swayed side to side to the music, hands lifted, fingers snapping, unlike Kinsey she seemed to really like the band. Did she have lower standards? Different tastes? Was she just drunk and would dance to the music in her head if there wasn't a sound? Who could say.

She turned her wiggle into a twirl as she whirled about to face Kinsey, fingers still snapping at her sides she grinned at the blonde. She recognized her from earlier, but couldn't remember much, just that she was the blonde. "Hey blondie!" She said happily, dancing her way over to her and lifting her arms about the blonde woman to give her a hug. She pulled the girl in the dark dress into her blue one, their shoes about the same height Becky being slight taller than her put them nearly eye to eye as she hugged her I've-been-drinking-so-you're-my-best-friend.

"I'm loving this!" She said happily, squeezing the woman and wiggling her side to side in a thrilled embrace before finally letting go. "I haven't been able to have fun like this since," she paused and glanced to the side, then up, "Ever, actually." She said with a realization as she giggled and then started to play at Kinsey's blonde locks, fixing them up a little as if they were great friends and she was totally cool to do this. "How about you, loving this or what?" She beamed.

JJ had been making drinks as fast as he could, sometimes pulling out his phone to look up ones that had odd names, or he just wasn't sure of. It was a busy night that was for sure, but he loved it. He absolutely thrived off of these festivities.

When his new friend Becky returned with her glass, he couldn't help but let a huge smile cross his lips. She had been rocking this party, and her previous nervousness seemed to have been whisked away. He was getting faster at making 'her' drink as he considered it now, and it didn't take long at all before he was holding it in front of her but not quite handing it over.

"The confidence looks beautiful on you. Give me a twirl, let me see... Then, you can have the drink!" Oh yes, he was most definitely flirting, but it was harmless. He just couldn't help himself. It had been absolutely amazing watching her blossom and watch as everyone mingled and began enjoying themselves.

Regardless of if she actually twirled or not, he held out the glass with her drink, looking directly into her eyes with a nod. She was fitting right in. There had been absolutely no reason to worry.

To say the blue-dressed bombshell was having the time of her life was an understatement. That it appeared to be alcohol-induced didn’t bother me in the slightest. From what I had seen of her so far, the girl had been in need of letting her hair down in a big way, and there’s nothing better than drink to help that along.

Despite barely knowing me, she twirled happily over like a prancing peacock and engulfed me into a tight hug, with a bright, silly grin on her face. Brushing the stray strands of her from her eyes with my fingers, I hugged her back just as warmly—having no concerns with personal body space—and laughed lightly at her over-friendly attitude

“Well, hello you,” I murmured dryly, letting her play with my hair as if we were best buddies, whilst I laid a surreptitious hand on her hip to keep her steady, in case she stumbled in her…enthusiastic state. “I can tell you’ve been having fun just by looking at you; you’re glowing, girl.”

Seeing JJ making her drink, I couldn’t help be curious as to what it was he’d been putting in them that had turned the girl into the veritable ‘life and soul’. There was only one way to find out.

“You wouldn’t be minding making a couple more of them, since you are knocking up a batch?” I asked him, nodding at the drink in his hand. “I wouldn’t mind a little of what she’s having, if it has this kind of impact.”

Turning back to Becky, I gave her a wink and nodded back at the barman.

“Now there’s a dish I bet you wouldn’t mind dining out on. I think you’re in there,” chuckling easily, I relaxed close to her. “I’ve been having a whale of a time—managed to make a complete pest of myself, and bag a few secrets of my own—who knew that big old fella over there was a witch with a penchant for ladies’ underwear? Okay, he didn’t tell me the last bit, but if you watch him as he bends over, you can see the pink lacing poking up from under his belt! I tell you, the things I could tell you about some of these people!”

Deciding it might be a good idea to keep an eye on Becky for a little while, in case someone took too much of an advantage—other than me of course—or (more likely) she ended up needing someone to hold her hair up at the right time (you know what I mean!) I leaned in close.

“So how many hearts have you broken so far tonight, you minx?” I asked, playfully. “How many poor innocent girls have you stolen secrets from, in exchange for a chaste kiss, and a promise of afters?”

And what are their names and numbers, because I might not mind a few less than innocent snogs too—it was a party, after all!

Becky was thrilled to hear that her confidence was coming off well enough for JJ to see it. She grinned at him and twirled instantly on command, laughing as she did. She felt her hair fan out around her and honestly, she felt pretty. Pretty and desirable and like a single woman in her 20s at a fancy resort should feel. It was a lovely thing! She laughed as she did and leaned over the bar a bit and said to him in a conspiratorial tone, "Feet hurting yet?" She grinned and then turned her attention to blondie.

She smiled as Kinsey placed a hand on her hip, glad that her physical attention was being returned and beamed at the woman. "Oh my gosh you have to try them." She said as the detective mirrored her drink order. "They're so amazing, I'd still be holding up the wall without it!" She beamed at JJ. "He's like some sort of booze whisperer." She grinned at Kinsey said she was 'in there' "And shush." She said giving the bar a playful glance, hoping JJ hadn't heard that. Not that he could possibly be unaware that Becky had been flirting with him, but still.

"Hearts broken?" She asked, still oblivious to what had happened earlier with Chris and the mystery woman. "None as far as I know. And innocent girls? Just one." She laughed, then glanced aside and said in a stage whisper. "The rest were not innocent at all, trust me." She grinned.

Speaking of which...she eyed Kinsey up and down. "What about you blondie, you in the market for a secret?" She grinned and wiggled her hips temptingly. "Remember, it's a kiss and a date if you tell me yours!"

The resort's bartender, Brandon Murphy, had been kept fairly busy preparing for the evening's masquerade.

The dress was meant to keep with the formal theme, but not be overly garish or attract attention. He was at the party to ensure guests were enjoying themselves and not to bring attention to himself.

Making his way around the room, Brandon attempted to anticipate what guests wanted - additional drinks, water...the list was long. He found himself noticing that Katrina was enjoying the party alone. Grabbing a signature drink for the evening he approached the guest.

An easy laugh escaped Jesse as well when Becky turned, holding out the drink in defeat. When she leaned in, he did as well, tossing the towel over his shoulder so he could listen closer. The question only made his smile wider and he turned his head to where the closeness was almost intimate.

"Like a bitch." He said ever so softly, a rumble of a laugh shaking his chest before he stood back.

He tried to give the ladies a bit of privacy, but for a moment, he could swear they both looked at him and he made sure to give them a bit of a wink. It looked like he had been mentioned in their conversation and when the pretty blonde one asked for one of the drinks it felt like it solidified his notion that he had at least been mentioned.

Taking a glass in his hand, he flipped it in the air, only to nearly drop it. That's what he got for trying to be suave. His partner surely would be shaking his head at JJ should he be paying attention "Another drink coming right up for another lovely lady." He smiled as he got to work. He had been getting pretty good at making this drink in particular and in no time at all he was holding it out to her, but in a different fancy glass so that way both of the ladies still had a special distinction, even with the same drink.

A palm reading and the cards,Lalita smiles. Keeping hold of Steffy's soft hand she turns it over to see her palm and see what it has to tell her. Lalita has left her pen in the tent but she traces over the palm with her finger remarking "This may tickle, oh but a little!" then she takes her time to study her clients palm. Steffy asks her a question “Do you think I have any possibility of being a seer, Lalita?” and Lalita looks up. "Is there something you seek?" she asks curious.

Having a gift can be a blessing and a curse. You would see many others pasts, presence and futures. They are not always pleasant. Shall we try?" Lalita let's go of Steffy's hand and turns her own over and offers it out. "Look into my hand,  then close your eyes. If you have any gifts something may just come to you" Lalita hadn't met many people outside her own family who had natural skills of a seer and she was interested to see what would happen.

Three cigarettes and an hour and a half later, Joseph decided it was time to come back inside. Placing his stubs and burned matches in his pocket, he would walk back inside. The song the band was playing took him back to the recording of the Glee sessions...that was a nightmare to get through. The band was quite obviously half-assing, and every second he listened, it only seemed to piss him off even more than the seemingly unfortunate circumstances he had been privy to throughout the evening so far. Even if it meant tossing money around, he felt the need to light a fire under some asses.


Walking up to the bandstand, Joseph would talk to the members of the band. With a bit of negotiation, he got the band to agree to play a single song with him leading the charge. Stepping up to the stage, one of the members of the band would hand him a spare guitar, getting everything hooked up. Looking around at the environment, he knew it was time to get things moving. "This is one for the lovers. Get up and dance."

Grinning at the interplay between Becky and JJ, I took the glass the barman offered and lifted it up a little to examine it.

“Now there’s a glass you wouldn’t want to have when you were drunk,”
I observed with a chuckle, before taking a sip of it. “I can see why you like these so much,” I told Becky, tasting the strength of them. “A few of these and all the cares of the world could slip away into nothing. You are a master of mixing, JJ, and I bow to your skill…especially if you keep them coming!”

Suddenly the band struck up a more modern, Californian vibe, and I glanced over at the band to see the guy I’d briefly talked to earlier front and centre on the stage, leading them into something a little more interesting. Listening for a few moments, I smirked in satisfaction, having figured him a musician earlier—he was actually rather good.

Turning my attention back to Becky, and laughing at her suggestion most here were not innocent, she finally asked the question that had most been on her lips all evening.

“A kiss and a date?” I pretend to muse her offer, my eyes twinkling with amusement; stroking the girls wriggling hips a little. “I bet you say that to every person with a secret, Lady Blue!” At the rate she was going, she’ll end up with more dates than was on all the trees in the desert. Time to see how much she wanted my secret. “How about a little negotiation? I’ll give you my secret in exchange for a kiss tonight, a date tomorrow and three dares and two truths that I ask of you, which you have to commit to following through on.”

Location: Stage
Tagging: Party Goers (mentions Joseph Edwards)

The party, so far, had been alright. It was not as energy filled as NYC New Year’s Eve bash, or a rather rambunctious five old’s birthday event with all their friends. However, neither was it dull.

The band was pretty decent at reading a room. They realized when party attendees preferred a slower paced song, resulting in a host of moon eyes being made along with some close contact dancing. No one liked slow song forever so they threw in a sufficient amount of faster songs. It was quite hilarious to witness people trying not to trample their partner’s feet while doing their best moves.

Reese, for once, did not reveal her rather unique superpower. What was her power? She had the distinct ability to become the Dancing Queen. Since childhood, she set many dance floors ablaze with her unique moves. Tonight, however, her duties as an employee took priority. It did not surprise her at all when Ms. Ruby delegated the high responsibility of issuing out rewards to tonight’s winners of each contest. Rather than utter a single complaint, as doing so would be useless, Reese made her way towards the stage for the second time. She did not ascend the small staircase right away when she noticed a guest taking one of the band’s guitars.

“Oh no,” Reese muttered underneath her breath; praying for the best but preparing for the worst outcome.

She resisted the urge to plug her ears in an effort to protect them from what she thought would be an awful performance. At other parties, she witnessed drunks wrestling the microphone out of the hands of paid performers. It amounted to a bunch of screeching notes and learning way too much about the person. 

By some miracle, the guy did possess some talent. Reese nodded her head in tune with the beat as people in the crowd ‘oohed’ and ‘awwed’ with approval. Others just continued to dance with their partners, unwilling to let them go for fear of losing them in the crowd. Once the song completed, she headed up the stairs with a huge smile and clapping hands.

“Let’s give it up for that guy again!” Reese said into the microphone which did not fail her by not working. “I loved it! Be careful we might keep you up there all night.” She chuckled and offered him a reassuring smile. “Just kidding. Seriously though, more applause, you guys. Alright, as you know, we are having a bit of contest tonight. Well, only two but still exciting. It’s a bit too early for the secrets one. Let’s give that another hour, yeah? However, we can certainly get voting. Take a good, long look around at your fellow Caravanserans. We’d like you to vote on three separate categories tonight; best dressed lady, best dressed gent, and also the best mask of the bunch. I know most of you don’t know each other’s name but do your best to describe them! Or...just point them out to us and we'll handle the rest. I'm going to be over there so stop by and vote!" She pointed towards a small table. "Let’s get this done in the next 15 minutes or so.”

Lalita has my hand in hers when applause is called for.  But Lalita lets go of my hand and offers hers.  I smile at her, applaud the group and then take her hand.

From my amused questioning she offers me a serious opportunity to ‘read’.  “Well that turns the table on me, doesn’t it?”   I nod, turning serious.  “Okay.  I’ll give this a serious effort.”

I close my eyes and run the tip of my finger along her palm.  Is this how it’s done?  Don’t know.  I hold her hand and place the palm of my other hand on hers. 

What’s coming to mind?  Hmm.  I open my eyes.  “Maybe nothing.  But here’s what popped into my mind.  A camel.  A water urn.  Sun—hot sun.  And a veil . . . for you. . . very pure . . . but I can’t say what color or anything.”

I shrug, “Might be the remnants of my day.  Yes? No? Maybe?”

Joseph finally began to get back into his element as he crooned "When I first met her, she was seventeen...". The band would fall in behind him, getting fully in sync as he delivered the line "Well it doesn't matter now, just come and love me how, like the way you used to do". The energy was magnanimous, combining a wicked desert energy with the jazz like groove of Cab Calloway, almost as if Joseph Edwards had the devil on his shoulder.


"Is love mental disease or lucky fever dream, fine with either..." Just as he had wanted, the revellers of Caravanserai began to get up and dance, the spirit of no tomorrow overtaking the room. The swagger Edwards kept locked away would come out, his movements smooth like water. The room felt hotter than usual, but Joseph didn't seem to mind it one bit.


"My heart's a ding-a-ling, a puppet on a string, c'est la vie-uh..." Joseph had them all right where he wanted. This was the thing he had needed, the best way he knew how to make himself memorable. Even if most of them never learned his name, they would know The Phantom of Caravanserai, they would at least remember this moment in due time. That alone was good enough for Joseph Edwards.


Getting into the home stretch, the passions of the band had hit their highest note of the evening so far. Then Joseph would deliver the last line, and the song would move into its close. After the final note, a woman would get up on stage. 'Be careful, we might keep you up there all night.' She had said in an obvious jest. "Be careful, I might take you up on it." Joseph would reply in the same tone. Taking the guitar off his shoulders, he would give a mock salute to the band and walk off.


After grabbing a drink at the bar, he would walk over to the table where the woman who had announced the voting was sitting.

Becky beamed at JJ and agreed with Kinsey's assessment. "Yes, he's just the best." She said, giving the bartender a full blast of her smile and appreciate eyes. "I would still be huddling in a corner someplace without him!" She picked up her new drink and sipped it happily as she talked with her blonde temporary best friend.

Ooooh what a shrewd negotiator she was! Becky wondered idly if Kinsey had figured out that Becky didn't actually want to haggle and just wanted to kiss and learn secrets? Well either way, the night was getting on and secrets were becoming harder and harder to find, especially for her as people were learning what others were worth and upping the price.

"Date tomorrow, kiss now, two truths, three dares?" She made a show of pondering. "Okay deal!" She said happily, shaking her hips in agreement. "But!" She raised a finger. "I get to veto any truth that's too personal or any dare that gets me kicked out of here!" She laughed. Then realized something else. "And no getting me to say other people's secrets!" That was probably safe to assume part of the deal in the first place.

"Now," She said, setting closer, into Kinsey's space, one arm sliding gently up her back to cup behind her head gently and leaned in, "Whisper me your secret darling!" She looked very eager to hear it.

Brandon nodded and offered his hand to Katrina. So far the masquerade had been a success at Caravanserai. He was especially pleased there was no opera ghost to steal a guest or worse - cause a chandelier to crash on top of the party goers. Then again, most phantoms of the opera were relegated to the pages by Gaston Leroux or the stage by Andrew Lloyd Weber. It was unlikely that a deformed, mask covered murderer would make his appearance in the middle of the desert.

The bartender had learned to dance from his grandmother. She taught him everything from a formal waltz to traditional Celtic dances. Remembering his gran brought happy emotions.

"What do you do for a living?" Brandon asked as the two danced around the floor.

I couldn’t help but chuckle at Bluey’s assertion she would be huddling in a corner without JJ’s mystic mixology skills, and clinked my glass to hers as we drank.

“Nothing like a drop of liquid courage to spur things along,” I agreed, giving JJ a wink over her shoulder.

As expected, with the announcement that the results of the secrets competition was impending, and them being harder to come by, Bluey leapt onto my counter-offer, though with some qualifications.

“You are a hard negotiator, aren’t you?” I observed, already turning her words around in my head, and spotting several loopholes in her statement that I may choose to exploit later. “But I think we can go with that.”

She was getting close now, and I smiled as she slid her hand around my back; reciprocating with my own; fingertips dancing up her spine to rest mid-back as the girl leant in.

“Payment first,” I purred back in a whisper. “Reward later; after all, you might renege if I told you first, and a kiss is a terrible thing to waste.”

Maybe we should get the band to play that next!

Becky smiled, the smile of the cat who was about to eat her fourth helping of canary, as Kinsey asked for payment up front.

She tilted her head to the side and moved in. Think of something witty to say. She told herself. Something sexy. Something super cool.

"Well a kiss is..." she began, then stalled, hard. Fuck. She was going somewhere with this, right? A terrible thing to waste? Worth two in the bush? Best served cold? Shines darkest before the dawn? Dammit. "Umm...." Good one Becky, you've got her now. Dammit. It was Kinsey's fault, really, that hand tracing along her exposed back was just so yummy, and the way her eyes sparkled and...dammit.

Not wanting to be stuck in that pause anymore she closed her eyes and charged, pressing her lips up against Kinsey's as she held a hand to the back of the girl's head, and another around her waist pressed up against her lower back. They weren't pushing or holding, just anchors for balance.

As the kiss progressed though, her hand crept along her back a bit more forcefully, rubbing against her skin almost like a caress now and pulling the two ladies in closer as Becky continued with her kiss. She wasn't about to let up anytime soon, but wasn't going to stop Kinsey from pulling back either.

In truth, Reese would not have minded if their unexpected musician continued to play songs throughout the night. The crowd liked him well enough. Many of them clapped and whistled once he completed his song. However, she also realized how much that might suck for the actual singer of the band.

Their name escaped her. It was 'S' something. Sinful Plectrum? No, that didn't sound quite right. Spank Bakery? Definitely not. Coral would have a heart attack.

Either way, the lead singer would probably spend the night sulking if some stranger stole his place amongst his peers. Especially after both he and the other members put a lot of time and effort into preparing for tonight.

Reese pushed those thoughts out of her mind. She didn't get paid enough for such worries. Instead, she hurried over to get designated table, hoping to reach it before anyone else. She was just setting out the small form, containing less than five questions, when the first guest arrived. Looking up, Reese smiled upon realizing it was their surprise star himself.

"Hello again," Reese greeted him as instinct compelled her to reach out and shake his hand, if he allowed it. "Are you a musician? I mean, professionally?" Her curiosity about him overrode the need to explain the questionnaire. "I figured so because not too many people are brave enough to do what you just did."

"Yeah...in a past life." Joseph would shake her hand, taking stock of the scenario he had now put himself in. "Those guys definitely needed a boot put to their asses. That version of Time Warp was...it was half-assed. Plus, this crowd definitely needed to get off their asses and move a bit."

Looking over at the bar, he saw Becky making yet another play. Of course, her new target seemed to not have the same baggage the first one had. Of course, the fact that Becky was doing such a thing was a tell all its own. Maybe he would have to ask about that if their date was still scheduled to happen.

“Isn’t an artist always an artist?” Reese asked in a rhetorical fashion, thinking aloud more than anything else. Her handshake was strong but not tight enough to hurt his fingers. “I just mean...you seemed to be enjoying yourself quite a bit. Maybe you should make time for it in the here and now? A weekend gig.” Knowing that she might be stepping over the line, she lifted her hands up in surrender. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to butt my head into your business. I can’t control myself sometimes.”

It did take her aback a great deal when he shifted from talking about himself to bashing the members of the band. Reese’s smile faltered, blue eyes not quite shining as bright. For a few seconds, she had no idea how to respond to him.

“Okay,” Reese said with a nod of her head. “Um. Were you interested in voting for someone?”

Becky could only stall for a little while trying to come back with a suitable response, before the ‘quip’ would turn into a ‘long’, and it ended up being physical, rather than verbal. Smiling, in what could only be described as vampiric eagerness, she placed a hand at the back of my neck, and dove in for the kiss.

Lips suddenly locked together, I kept my eyes open to enjoy the expression on her face, even as my free hand rested on the curve of her hip. The kiss was tentative at first; almost gentle in its hesitancy, before becoming deeper and more forceful as her confidence grew.

Tracing a nail in circles on the exposed skin of her back, and leaning into the girl’s caress, I let my tongue paint along her lips as the kiss progressed; tasting the residue of JJ’s latest cocktail upon them. Sensing Becky was enjoying it as much as I was, and wouldn’t be backing off anytime soon, I pulled her in a little tighter; happy to give her what she wanted.

I guessed there would be a few people watching that weren’t exactly complaining either.

Becky was much better at kissing than quick witted zingers. She pressed her soft lips into Kinsey's with a playful, loving pressure and her back arched happily in response to Kinsey's fingers tracing their little circles. A soft little moan worked its way into the kiss as Becky titled her head left and then right, coming at Kinsey from one angle and then the other as she tried to find the perfect fit. With her back arched and her knees feeling a little weak, Becky's curvy body pressed into the blonde woman's more slender frame and she enjoyed the comfortable feel of their mouths, tongues, and figures interacting as her hands gripped the back of Kinsey's head with just enough force to hold her there as the two shared a passionate kiss at the bar.

Eventually though, Becky had to come back for air and did so, her eyes slowly fluttering back down, her hand lowering itself to rest around Kinsey's shoulders as the other gripped her by the waist. She didn't pull herself away otherwise and left their bodies very close, gazing on Kinsey with a very satisfied look that was a look that hadn't quite decided if it wanted to be a smirk or a smile when it grew up.

Becky enjoyed a moment of just being there with this woman and then finally spoke. "How was that?" She asked with a grin.

Joseph would grab one of Reese's forms and fill it out quickly. He chose to leave the vote on "Best Mask" blank. He was a bit too biased about his own to really vote fairly there. After finishing, he folded the paper and put it in the ballot box. "No need to apologize. After all, I am going to be staying here for quite a while. I'll need all the friends I can get. Come by and see me sometime. If I'm not in Mirage, I'll be in Quos Residential Suite Number Five." With a wink, he left her to her devices and walked back to the bar.

"Lime Tonic." He asked of a nondescript bartender. Joseph sat back and let the events of things unfold around him for a bit.

The kiss lasted longer than expected, but was all the more enjoyable for it, as our tongues danced slowly around each other in intricate little movements like two lovers on the dancefloor. Taking the moan of satisfaction that elicited from Becky’s lips as encouragement, I pulled her curvaceous body closer to me, and enjoyed the warm, passionate heat of the moment.

The moment had to end eventually, however, and it did so with the soft fluttering of her eyelashes, as Becky opened her eyes to look at me, and pull herself away. Resting comfortably against each other, both my hands now resting on her lower back, I returned her smile with one of my own, and added a wink to boot.

“Well, someone’s been practicing,” I observed lightly, eyes glittering merrily. “Though I’m not complaining, and that’s a fact. Seems to me you’re a woman on a mission for new experiences, and I’m happy to be part of the adventure. The question is, is it just secrets you are after in this place, or are you looking for more?”

Sure, I could have used one of my truths up to ask that question, but it was worth a punt if I didn’t have to waste it. Besides, I was enjoying this.

Becky was finding that holding Kinsey close was a very comfortable feeling, and she let her hands settle, one around her lower back the other up on her shoulder as she enjoyed the closeness of being with her.

"Yeah, just now." She laughed. "You're the second girl I ever kissed." Obviously the first had been just earlier this evening.

"And yeah I think that's right." She nodded, "A mission for new experiences, that's why I'm here after all." She smiled big. "And truth be told I dunno what I'm looking for really. I'm just hoping I know when I find it." She shrugged. "I'm not gonna worry about it, whether I'm doing what I'm supposed to or not, it's time that Becky's gonna worry about Becky for once, and not a damn thing else." She said with confidence, obviously still trying to psych herself up.

"But in the short term..." she smiled. "I will take that secret now." She leaned in so that Kinsey could whisper it to her.

As Brandon and Kati continued dancing their conversation shifted to the pubs in the UK. "Ack, the pubs my family owns are amazing places - full of fun and laughter. Everyone is treated as an equal. You would enjoy it." Brandon was enjoying his time with Kati, but was afraid that he was being lax in his duties. There also was a written - though sometimes overlooked - rule about fraternizing with guests. There was a line that could not be crossed. Brandon was no where near that line so he felt safe.

"So tell me, where is the most exciting place you've visited?"

I laughed along with Becky as she admitted I was the second girl she had kissed. Given I had been witness to the first earlier tonight, she really was intent on getting as many new experiences as she could in as short a time as possible. I also suspected, despite the comfortableness of our embrace, she would most likely drop me like a hot potato the moment she heard my secret, so she could go hunting for more.

I wasn’t going to be that easy.

The band had struck up a more romantic air, perhaps embarrassed by their ‘guest performer’ into actually working for the crowd—rather than just dialling it in—but with the combination of it being still relatively early in the night and the voting, the dancefloor was relatively empty, which gave me an idea.

Grinning, I moved my lips to Becky’s ear as she leant in, having asked for my secret and chuckled.

“But the night’s still young, hun,” I whispered playfully. “Don't forget, you still owe me a couple of things before you can collect on my wish, and I think I’ll take one of them now. You want new experiences, well then, I dare you to come dance with me in the middle of the room whilst they’ve got the right mood music on—let everyone see the sapphire in their midst!”

Tagging: Brandon, Kati, open

The business was picking up. One thing JJ had learned while working behind a bar is that alcohol only bred more alcohol. The more people drank the more they wanted and he wasn't being able to keep up. He wasn't nearly as skilled as his partner, and there were some drinks that people were mentioning he was having to look up and it was taking far too long.

Apologizing to the customers, he gave a warm smile. "I will be back momentarily. Just need to quickly... Grab someone." His heels clicked as he left behind the bar, his stride barely hindered by the fact that his feet were killing him. Why hadn't he brought other shoes? Oh well, hindsight is 20/20. His eyes scanned the dancers before finally landing on Brandon.

"Excuse me. You look lovely. Excuse me." Was muttered softly as he made his way to his partner, resting his hand gently onto his shoulder. He wasn't angry, nor trying to be overly rude. "Pardon my interruption you two." He said quickly for he didn't want to leave the bar unattended for long. "I'm very sorry for the rudeness, lovely." He looked into Kati's eyes and gave a bit of a sheepish smile. "If you don't mind, I kind of need to steal Brandon away. The bar is getting busy, and I'm not nearly as skilled as he. I hope you don't mind."

Becky wasn't truly after the secrets so much as she was after having fun, so while playing the game of being after secrets and using it as an excuse to flirt, collect kisses, and get dates set up for later was working just fine, it didn't mean she was in any rush at all really.

"Oh that wasn't the deal darling." She said, holding out her hand and then leading Kinsey to the dance floor. "You owe me that secret." She slipped her arms around Kinsey's waist and then slid her hands down to the girl's hips, moving back and forth with her as she danced slowly.

"If you decide to take all day collecting your end of it that's on you darling." She smiled at Kinsey, rocking her hips back and forth to the music, letting it take over her rhythm slowly, "But I've held up what I bargained for and now you gotta tell me that thing nobody else knows." She teased, her face coming rather close to Kinsey's again, looking for a moment like it might dart in to steal another kiss, but then pulling back a bit.

After receiving his drink, Joseph would watch the two women at the bar continue to talk among themselves, truly acting as The Phantom of Caravanserai. Silently, he would note each move made in the mental game of chess between Becky and her companion, noting how they were equal in their moves, as if all sixteen pawns on the board had been moved into a blockade at the center, protecting the royals while forcing one or the other to begin sacrificing pieces.

Of course, now he felt out of place again. As if Caravanserai was a place he was never meant to enter.

Eagerly allowing myself to be led onto the dancefloor, I smiled as her hands found my hips and returned the favour; allowing mine to cup her fulsome derriere lightly as we moved to the music, bodies swaying in perfect synchronicity.

“I thought the deal was to not worry about things, and just have fun,” I countered with a grin, my breath tickling the girl’s ear. “What’s more boring than getting everything you wanted the moment you asked for it?”

Giving her a wink, I span us around a little to allow the flowing netting of my dress to temporarily wrap around her legs, before spiralling back behind me like glittering black stars.

“As for telling you something that nobody else knows? Now that is a challenge a girl like me can’t resist, but doesn’t qualify the secret that you want, given the hunk by the door knows it—though whether he remembers it is a matter of debate!”

Making a show of thinking as we danced close by, I finally came up with the goods.

“I’m petrified of the quiet,” I volunteered with a secretive whisper. “Some people are scared of crowds, and having to interact with others, but where hell is other people for some, for me its being alone in a room!”

Tagging: Kinsey, OPEN!

Becky, despite her efforts to be serious and demanding, was all smiles and grins as her and Kinsey danced. Where Kinsey swirled gracefully Becky was more of a swayer, she had a build for keeping her feet planted and letting the rest of her body do the work, whereas Kinsey seemed better suited for graceful twirling. It made for a fun dance, and especially as Kinsey's long lacy skirts flowed around Becky's legs for a moment, tickling her bare skin, Becky couldn't help but feel goosebumps for more than one reason. That plus the way those hands just ever so slightly cupped her backside was just lovely, she had to admit.

She responded to this by letting her hands slide up and one wrap around Kinsey's shoulders again, holding her close as if to say 'got you now' as the two whispered closely to each other again. "Who says I'm not having fun?" Was the first thing she said, letting one of her hands train down Kinsey's back again, rubbing down her spine with just a little bit of pressure to tease out the tension there before it mimicked what Kinsey's hands were doing, spreading out into a wide-fingered grab of that perky little backside. "This seems fun to me." She said giving an oh-so adventurous squeeze.

"And it doesn't seem boring at all...but then again I'm not really getting all I want..." She grinned at the double meaning of it. She was finding this flirting came easily, provided nobody told her how ridiculous she sounded.

She sighed as she heard the secret, her lips forming into a pout as she gazed on Kinesy's face. "You poor baby." She spoke through her pressed lips, "Well you just stay with me then, I'll make sure you aren't alone for this party." She grinned, not that where her hands currently were, one around the woman's shoulders the other around her backside, were giving her much choice in whether she was alone or not.

I was half surprised we weren’t being hauled off the dancefloor for lewd behaviour, considering the seductive mix of swish swirl and sway we were producing for the viewing pleasure of everyone around us, but I wasn’t complaining if nobody else was!

Eyes sparkling in encouragement as Becky held me possessively close, I arched my back slightly as the girl’s hand played teasingly down my spine to rest on my rump. Giving a little wiggle as she grabbed and squeezed my backside, I returned the favour two-handed, using the little finger of each hand to hook under the hem of her dress for a little added twist.

“Seems fun to me too,” I agreed with a wink, before raising my eyebrow curiously at her next statement. “Though it would be remiss of me as your dance partner if I didn’t try and give you everything that you were after. Tell me, secret aside, what is it that you want that I can give you?”

The question had been too good to resist, especially when my line about being afraid to be alone had struck gold! Who wouldn’t want to enjoy the party with a tipsy, adventurous, flirtatious beauty in her arms? Judging by her track record, she might well find someone else in the short term, but I wanted to make sure whatever time we had was memorable enough to make her want to have a follow up.

I played the long game, after all, and there were plenty of other nights and days to come after this one!

Joseph would continue to sip on his drink and watch the room as if he were its overlord and silent guardian, neither benevolent or malevolent. The man in the steampunk mask would interject between one of the couples, he was more than clearly overwhelmed by the look on his face. The gentleman who had been dancing left with him and began to walk back towards the bar. The woman he had been dancing with seemed dejected.

Looking back out on the dance floor...things seemed to be rapidly heating up between Becky and her companion. Becky seemed to be the magnet, her partner the metal. A top 40 tune from three years ago came to mind there...of course, his Spanish was a bit rusty, or he'd see about bringing that one to the desert for the two of them.

A new person would make her way to the bar, the blonde friend of the man the bartender had grabbed, both of them back behind the bar now. He recognized her voice well enough, but Joseph decided that he'd keep that for himself. "Some have called me The Phantom of Caravanserai." Joseph replied, even though only one person actually called her that...and she left the party almost two hours ago.

"Looks like your friend there got dragged into work. That's a shame." He said without ceremony. Blanc Noir was an interesting little name, maybe he could get a secret out of her.

"I've got all the grace of two left feet. Unfortunately." He would reply with a sarcastic chuckle before finishing his drink.

Hmmm. She wiggled when squeezed. This was good to know! Drunk Becky thought, as if she needed an operating manual for girls. They were much more complicated when they weren't you. But this part was easy, she liked this part. Squeeze makes wiggle, wiggle looks good, yes, Drunk Becky confirmed. I've got this lesbian thing totally figured out. Wait you're not a lesbian, Sober Becky, somehow interjected. Shut up Sober Becky nobody likes you Drunk Becky shouted to the loud cheers of all the other Drunk Beckys. Sober Becky went to her room to sulk, leaving Drunk Becky firmly in charge.

Speaking of firm, it appeared Kinsey was trying out the experiment to see how Becky reacted. Becky didn't so much wiggle as roll her hips a little, putting her ass in motion so those hands could try to get a hold of it. Whereas Becky could get a firm grip and squeeze, Kinsey was dealing with more area and it rolled about under her hands as if threatening to slide her off. Hold on! It encouraged her. Hold on if you - Becky paused, realizing Kinsey had hooked her fingers under the short hem of the dress, putting them in a position where they were capable of some rather dangerous things.

She looked rather flustered for a moment, glancing about and leaning in closer to Kinsey as if that would shield her from the many eyes on them. She'd negotiated every inch of this dress with herself, very nearly not leaving her room due to how much it exposed. Threatening to show off more of her to the world was just madness. And so she stayed very still for a moment as if she was afraid of spooking those fingers and causing them to try to tug it up in a panic.

But the look in her eyes and the giggle that accompanied it was more of a but I already had dessert than a that is assault madam.

"Well, first," she said speaking outloud now, "You can make sure you leave my dress where you found it." She said with a smirking smile, punctuated with the most forceful squeeze to Kinsey's backside of the night. Despite her reaction she hadn't moved a single one of her hands to stop Kinsey from doing more of the same, and her ass slowly, carefully, resumed that gentle swaying roll it had begun when those hands were put on it.

"As as for the rest..." she smiled her drunken smile, "Darling do I look like I have a clue what I want?" She laughed, and then suddenly, without warning pulled her in close and kissed her full on the lips again, nearly bonking her mask into Kinsey's in the process.

As much as I was having a good time with Becky, there was no way that I was going to take advantage of the girl in the condition she was in. Being an experienced imbiber of the alcoholic nectar, I had intimate knowledge of the twin morning demons ‘What the fuck did I get up to last night?’ and ‘Did I really do that? What was I thinking??’, and their cousins; the ‘I can never show my face in public again’ pixie, the ‘Oh god, oh god, oh GOD!’ fairy.

Because of this, I knew exactly how she was going to feel the next morning and, given I wanted to see a lot more of the girl, had to control some of my more baser instincts. Becky wasn’t exactly making that an easy task, however, and had escalated her bum squeezing to full on arse groping, complete with come-on grin. Add that to her arch suggestion to keep her dress the way I had found it, and the full-on kiss, and it was hard to keep my focus.

“Having no clue is the first step to wisdom, I’m told,”
I smiled back; parting my lips a little to invite a deeper kiss as I squeezed as much of her curvaceous behind in my hands. “After all, how can you know what you like unless you take a taste of everything?”

She sure was getting a big taste of my cherry gloss as we let our tongues dance around each other, and I decided to take my own advice and just enjoy things for what they were. Leaving one hand to caress and grope her backside; a finger tracing along the underside of her curves, I moved my other hand slowly up her spine to rest against her neck so that we danced as close as possible as I looked into her eyes.

"Woodford Old Fashioned." The Phantom would order, thinking that it would clue her in as to the man behind the mask. After their drinks were given, Joseph would lead her to the cordoned off door. Just as before, he would easily open it. He would lead her through the door to the outer balcony. Taking a cigarette from his jacket pocket, he would light it. "Price is simple." Joseph spoke as he exhaled smoke, "I've shown you this secret...now, you have to return the courtesy. We were all given secrets at the door, and I want yours."

After all, he did need more to show for his later rendezvous with Becky...that was...if that date was still scheduled to occur. His friend in the stunning blue dress was tied up in another affair.

Wearing: As pictured plus this mask
Location: Masquerade Ball
Tagging: Kinsey, OPEN!

"Yeah, plans are for losers." Becky agreed, stumbling a bit in their dance, which led to giggles of delight at how wonderful it was to stumble. Sure she could blame those hands on her ass, or the distraction from the kiss, but it was mostly the booze. She meant what she said. All her life she'd been making plans, thinking ahead, plotting out her future. What had that gotten her? Well it had gotten her here. And why go beyond that?

She happened to be glancing around the room and her eyes landed on the snack table. Her mouth started watering instantly. "You hungry?" She asked with the tone of one who was actually saying 'I'm very hungry' as she suddenly wasn't dancing anymore.

She slipped her arm around Kinsey's waist, her goal to walk side by side with the girl over to one of the tables near the snack table so she could load up and sit down for a minute. "Oh god that looks so good." She muttered, eyeing the food. "Wait we need more drinks." She spun Kinsey about as she did a reverse of direction to head back to the bar. "No food." She turned about again.

"Hmmm." She panicked, wanting both. "Okay food." She finally decided and began heading in that direction, hopefully with Kinsey in tow, but willing to let her go if that was the price of eating.

  “Oh don’t be silly! Secret identities one for the other would be a fair trade, but I’m saving mine!. For this place, I have nothing comparable to offer, I guess …”

… Käti leans over the railing, her ass clearly on display through the short leather skirt … she wonders what it would feel like to be fucked right here right now by a masked man smoking a cigarette … she wiggles her ass at the thought …

"I think your secret is more than comparable, unless you're willing to negotiate a new deal." Joseph would turn the charm on a bit there, putting more affectation into his natural Southern accent. Noting the way she bent over the railing, it seemed she was attempting to use her feminine wiles for some sort of reason...yet another familiar sight for the Phantom of Caravanserai.

Date | Time: June 6th 2020 | 9:30 PM
Wearing: Blue Dress with Mask
Location: Stage
Tagging: Joseph Edwards, Breezy, Chris

Reese kept busy for the next fifteen minutes or so.

There was no mad dash to her designated voting table. Most party attendees were preoccupied with their prior engagements to her announcement, either engaging in thrilling conversation or burning up the dance floor with their fancy moves. Eventually, due to their own curiosity in what the prizes might be or beng unable to ignore Reese’s frantic arm waving, there was a suitable amount of votes for her to conclude a winner.

Almost immediately after closing the voting period, Reese realized there was a slight problem. Well, a big problem. Some people’s handwriting was quite atrocious. She felt like a little old lady, squinting her eyelids in order to discover the meaning of what looked like chicken scratch. Her second problem became obvious after she figured out the hidden mean penned upon each paper. Some of the guests, obviously, did not know each other’s names. The entire theme of tonight, with the secrets and masks, was mystery and allure.

Cursing under her breath, Reese took a bit longer than intended with sorting out the votes. Someone else might have become discouraged...or asked for help. Not Reese. It took about thirty minutes or so before her task was complete. A quick glance at the clock put some pep in her step as she hurried over to the bar, grabbing some stashes stored behind there, and then headed up once more to the stage.

“Sorry to disrupt your fun...again!” Reese said with an apologetic smile. Thankfully, the mic was not being an ass like earlier in the night. “But I wanted to go ahead and announce tonight’s winner of the ‘Best in Show’ competition.” She snickered at her bad joke, amused by it. “Alright, as they say, ladies first! Now you all look good to me but this lady wowed a few people with her black ensemble! Ms. Breezy, please come to the front and accept your prize!”


As she would do with all of the winners, Reese would help them into their sash along with hand them an envelope of goodies, including a gift card prize to be redeemed anywhere and coupon for some free services at the hotel.

“Alright, next up are the gentleman! Two quickly rose through the ranks. It was a bit of back and forth battle between them. Apparently, they made quite the impression on a few people. One blazed like a star while the other was a bit shadowy, in a good way! Until he revealed a secret talent tonight for you all with a dance worthy tune. We have a tie! Please come to the stage Mr. Goldie and Caravanserai’s own Phantom of the Masquerade!”

"No, nothing like that. I just figured that fair was fair. After all, you seem to drive a hard bargain." Joseph would finish another cigarette, stubbing it out and placing the waste in his pocket. At that time, he heard the announcement...the lady at the voting table. Hmm.

"So...you've got one chance. You can see my face now...or not at all. You either learn who I am, or remember me as just The Phantom of Caravanserai. Your choice. Now or never." He wanted to make sure that their business had been concluded before having to worry about whatever announcement was going on.

"Fair's fair." The Phantom would reply after she had fulfilled her end of the bargain. He would take off his mask momentarily, long enough for her to see his face. "Secret's safe with me." Joseph gave her a wink and put the mask back on.

Leading the way, he would walk back into the Main Hall, to find the crowd of people applauding him. Though why, he did not know.

Lalita winds her way back through the crowd to the slightly quiter corner of the ball room. As they do so the announcement for  the best dress can be heard and as they walk Lalita applauds. The tent stands silent and mysterious before them. Lalita reaches out her bangles chime merrily as she pushes back the curtained doorway the hooded female reaches for a tasseled rope and loops the piece of cloth through it. Returning to her chair she sits and flourishes a hand to indicate that Steffy should sit also. "Which shall we look at first? The hand or the cards?" she asks.

Reese was accustomed to people being shy about being onstage but she suspected that was not the reason for the man's delay, especially after he volunteered to perform without practicing in front of a live audience. If anything, he appeared more confused by the onslaught of attention being poured upon him.

"Step right up, Phantom!" She encouraged with a beckoning motion of her hand. "You're one of tonight's winners!"

The other winner of the gentleman category did not appear to be present in the hall anymore. She made a mental note to seek them out tomorrow and offer their prize to them.

At the suggestion to visit the tent by Lalita, I’ve suggested it might be exotic.  And when Lalita leads us there, I’m right, again—exotic.  Clearly no insight needed for that.  I wonder if my ‘powers’ will be tested later.

I’m given a choice of hand or card by Lalita.  I thrust my right hand out to her.  “Does it matter which hand?”

Joseph found himself quite confused indeed. But, at her suggestion, he would step up onto the stage. Looking out at the throng of people, he found himself a tad bit overwhelmed. "Winner of what, may I ask?" He knew that people would be voting over certain things, he had done so himself an hour earlier. But, being called a winner didn't really tell him much of anything.

Reese brought her hands together yet again, clapping for Mr. Phantom. The audience followed her cue by doing the same. Her eyebrows drew together when he still didn't understand the reason behind his being called onto the stage. She blushed a little from embarrassment, feeling like the worst announcer ever. How had she became nominated for this job again? Oh yeah...Ruby was lost in her cups.

"Oh crap." She bumped her hand against the microphone, causing a rather unpleasant sound. "Whoops! Sorry about that. Um. You won best dressed for the men's category. People here think you look good tonight. It was a tie really but..."

At that, a lady did a wolf whistle from the crowd. 

Walking over to him, Reese lifted the sash up but did not put it over his head, waiting for his permission.

"I know this is really silly," she whispered low enough for the microphone didn't pick up her voice. "But at least you won some money from it."
